Gwyneth Paltrow appears in court over Utah ski collision
Actor Gwyneth Paltrow has been accused of fleeing the scene after she plowed into a retired doctor, seriously injuring him.
Paltrow says she was hit from behind by another skier with minor injuries, while Terri Sanderson, 76, a retired optometrist, says it was Paltrow who hit her in a “full-body attack” while skiing down the slopes of Park City, Utah. .
She was left with “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement” after the film actor and Coop CEO crashed into her. Law & Crime.
The trial will decide who is liable for damages, which started at $3.1m but were reduced to a $300,000 claim against Paltrow. She is seeking one dollar in damages and to cover legal fees.
Witness Craig Ramon testified Tuesday that Ms. Paltrow left “three to four” minutes after the collision and did not come to help Mr. Sanderson, who was face covered in snow and unconscious.
The ski collision case dragged on for years
In a lawsuit spanning several years since the 2016 incident, Sanderson is suing Paltrow for $300,000 — claiming the accident in Park City was negligent, causing her physical injuries and emotional distress.
At ski resorts, the downhill skier has the right of way, so the central question in the case was who was further down the initial run at the time of the collision. Both Paltrow and Sanderson claim in court filings that they were further downhill when the other bumped into them.
Sanderson also accused Deer Valley and its employees of engaging in a “cover-up” by not providing complete information about incident reports and not following resort safety policies.
