Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyer complains after the actress was photographed in court

Actor Gwyneth Paltrow’s ongoing civil trial during 2016 skiing the collision continued on Wednesday.

The Hollywood star and Goop The CEO has been accused of crashing into retired optician Terry Sanderson, 76, on a ski slope at the Deer Valley resort in Park City, Utah in February 2016.

Sanderson claims Paltrow slammed him into a “full-body hit” that left him “permanently traumatized brain injuryfour broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement”.

Meanwhile, Paltrow claims it was Ms Sanderson who crashed into her on the slope.

Testifying for Mr Sanderson’s legal team, neuroradiology expert Dr Windell Gibby said the scenario presented by Mr Sanderson was more consistent with the extent of the injuries he suffered.

“The damaging force of just falling over wouldn’t be the same as if you had someone hit you and knock you over,” Dr Gibby said. “If you have the combined strength of two people, that would also increase… his probability of damage.”

The injuries caused Mr Sanderson to “on the contrary” is suffering a sharp decline in his mental and emotional quality of life, the radiologist said.

Seven years later, the lawsuit will determine who is responsible for damages that began at $3.1 million but were later reduced to a $300,000 claim against Paltrow. She is seeking a single dollar in damages and for her legal fees to be covered.

Expert explains Mr Sanderson’s post-collision injuries

Sanderson’s lawyers are trying to prove that it was Paltrow who hit their client, arguing that the downhill skier always has the right of way.

Instead, Paltrow claims Sanderson drove into her.

Neuroradiology expert Dr Gibby testified for the defense and said the scenario presented by Sanderson’s lawyers was more consistent with the extent of the injuries he suffered – four displaced broken ribs.

“The damaging force of just falling over wouldn’t be the same as if you had someone hit you and knock you over,” Dr Gibby said. “If you have the combined strength of two people, that would also increase… his probability of damage.”

ICYMI: The parties strive to prove who is at fault for the collision

Sanderson claims Paltrow is largely to blame for the accident. In his complaint filed in 2019, he alleges that after the collision she “got up, turned and drove off, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured.”

“A Deer Valley ski instructor, who had coached Paltrow, but did not see the crash, drove over, saw the injured Sanderson and drove off, accusing Sanderson of causing the crash,” the complaint states.

Paltrow, on the other hand, claims that her instructor actually witnessed the collision.

The rule of the hills in Utah is that those ahead of you have the right of way and those coming from behind must avoid others. Both Mr Sanderson and Ms Paltrow claim they were further down the mountain.

Gwyneth Paltrow claims the extent of Mr Sanderson’s injuries was exaggerated

Paltrow says in her filing before the trial that Mr. Sanderson’s injuries are exaggerated because an examination was conducted with his doctor, which did not reveal anything lacking in his cognitive function, the claim says.

The movie star’s filing states that medical records show he was diagnosed with a “mild” concussion and that he has spent “long periods” on vacation abroad since the crash.

The counterclaim also alleges that Sanderson had 15 chronic medical problems and that a year earlier he told his doctor that he was blind in his right eye and that the vision in his left eye was getting worse.

“She did not knock him down or cause him to suffer a concussion, brain injury or broken ribs,” Paltrow’s filing states.
