A class action lawsuit filed in Australia over DePuy Orthopaedics’ recalled metal-on-metal ASR Hip Implants has signed up more than 1,000 plaintiffs. The attorneys representing the Australian ASR Hip Implant lawsuit plaintiffs recently told The Courier-Mail that damages in the lawsuit are expected to be worth more than $200 million.

One of the plaintiffs involved in the DePuy ASR Hip implant lawsuit, 47-year-old Stuart Cain, received the metal-on-metal hip implant in 2007. Since then, Johnson & Johnson has paid for Cain’s three replacement hip implant surgeries, the last one about a month ago. Mr. Cain told The Courier-Journal that he fears losing his house because he is unable to work.
