English translation:Damages were quantified on the basis of empirical economic calculations
Explanation:
Or, if you prefer, "the quantification [or "determination"] of damages was the result of empirical economic calculations." In any event, "spannometrico" = "empirical", as in the following excerpt from the web site below: "Come si fa a modellare la realtà? Enrico Fermi era un abile risolutore di problemi con metodo "spannometrico"; vorrei conoscere metodi pratici per semplificare la risoluzione di problemi complessi."
