The $417 million award can be broken down between compensatory and punitive damages as follows.
"We are preparing for additional trials in the USA and we will continue to defend the safety of Johnson's Baby Powder", Goodrich said in a statement.
Bart Williams, an attorney for J&J, explained to jurors during closing arguments that finding talc possibly causes the disease isn't the same as deciding that it probably does, which is the stricter standard required under California law for when a product needs a warning label.
There are about 4,800 similar claims nationally, including four lawsuits in Missouri where Johnson & Johnson dished out more than $300 million total in damages.
Jayne Conroy, a trial lawyer representing plaintiffs in other cases involving Johnson & Johnson, said the jury's verdict should serve as a warning to women throughout the United States.
According to CNN, Echeverria had been using the powder for decades as a part of her feminine routine, but stopped using the product in 2016 because she saw where another woman developed ovarian cancer from the product's use. As a powder, it absorbs moisture well so that is widely used in cosmetic products such as baby powder and adult facial powders for keeping skin dry and helping to prevent rashes.

Kyle Busch takes checkered flag at Bass Pro Shops NRA
Busch encouraged Toyota and Joe Gibbs Racing to sign Jones, who then quickly ascended up through NASCAR's developmental ladder. It's disappointing but I think it shows the talent level he has. "And I felt lucky and fortunate to have got a victory here".
The California jury made the award, which included $347m in punitive damages, to Eva Echeverria on Monday after she filed suit in July of past year, a representative of the Los Angeles Superior Court told the AFP news agency. Based on the studies and other allegations of later public health studies and other information, she alleged that the company was aware, or should have known, it was marketing a product harmful to women.
The Echeverria case was the first California talc case to go to trial, and the jury's massive figure will set a new standard for the many talc cases to come.
He added: "She really didn't want sympathy".
Evidence presented in the trial included internal documents that proved Johnson & Johnson "knew about the risks of talc and ovarian cancer". Individual jury awards in mass tort litigation are idiosyncratic and are often reduced on appeal. In her lawsuit, she claimed that the company does not warn about the potential risks of cancer that the usage of the talcum powder poses to consumers, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday. She also blamed the company's talcum powder for the illness, which she had been using for 40 years.
In those studies, women who used the products had a greater risk of being diagnosed with cancer than a control group that did not use the products. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer 10 years ago.
Johnson & Johnson has continued to stand behind its talcum powder products because it says science has determined they're safe to use.
