9/11 first respondersMiscalculations have led to reductions in the settlement payouts many ailing responders to New York's Ground Zero have received, a lawyer said.

The dollar value of each point given to workers for the severity of their illnesses was recently set at $7.36, below the $7.50 to $9.19 range first estimated, the New York Post reported Sunday.

"Obviously, it was a big mistake. They miscalculated the total number of points awarded, so the value dropped significantly," said a lawyer in the case whose name wasn't reported.

The responders are currently getting the final payments of their $680 million settlement with New York City, which was agreed upon by 95 percent of the 10,000 police officers, firefighters, hard hats and other workers who filed claims.
