A B.C. judge has approved a class action lawsuit settlement for hundreds of people with allegedly defective hip implants.

“We’re very pleased that the settlement has now been approved by the courts in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia,” said Vancouver lawyer David Klein.

“This is a national settlement but it required the approval from all three courts. The claims process can now open and within the next few months people who filed claims will start receiving compensation.”

About 1,100 people opted into the class action lawsuit in Ontario and Quebec. Klein said he expects several hundred more claimants will come forward in B.C.
