Gwyneth Paltrow appears in court over a ski accident in Utah
Actor Gwyneth Paltrow has been charged with fleeing the scene of a skiing collision after allegedly robbing a retired doctor who was seriously injured.
Paltrow claims she was hit from behind by another skier who had minor injuries, while Terry Sanderson, 76, a retired ophthalmologist, claims it was Paltrow who rammed him in a “full body blow” while she was skiing on the slopes of Park City, Utah. .
He says the movie star and CEO of Goop hit him so hard that he was left with “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement,” according to Law and crime.
The trial will determine who is responsible for damages that started at $3.1 million but have since been reduced to the $300,000 claim against Paltrow. She is seeking $1 in damages and to cover her legal fees.
Witness Craig Ramone testified on Tuesday that Ms Paltrow left “three to four minutes” after the collision and did not offer to help Mr Sanderson, who was reportedly face down in the snow and unconscious.
The ski collision lawsuit dragged on for years
In a case that has dragged on for years since his 2016 incident, Sanderson has sued Paltrow for $300,000 — claiming that the incident in Park City was the result of negligence, leaving him with physical injuries and emotional distress.
At ski resorts, the skier coming off the slopes has the right-of-way, so the main question in the case is who was furthest from the beginner’s run when the collision occurred. Both Paltrow and Sanderson claim in court filings that they were on a more insane streak when the other bumped into them.
Sanderson also accused Deer Valley and its employees of engaging in a “cover-up” by failing to provide complete information on accident reports and not following the resort’s safety policies.
