Gwyneth Paltrow skiing experience – LIVE: Actress tells court she initially thought skiing accident was ‘sexual assault’


Shay Sanderson accuses Gwyneth Paltrow of ‘ignoring’ her father in a skiing accident

Gwyneth Paltrow says she briefly believed a 2016 ski collision was actually a sexual assault and “froze” when a set of skis suddenly “took my legs apart.”

Terry Sanderson, 76, has accused the Hollywood star of crashing into him on a ski slope at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, in February 2016, leaving him with “a permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement.” “.

Meanwhile, Paltrow claims that it was Mr. Sanderson who bumped into her – and that he then told his daughter he was “famous”. The Goop mogul is expected to be called on the stand by Mr Sanderson’s attorney today.

In court on Thursday, Sandron’s attorney Robert Sykes slammed the star’s legal team for asking his daughter about allegations from another daughter that her father was abusive.

Mr. Sykes claimed that Paltrow’s team was only going this route because the actor was “concerned about the way this case was going.”

“You can’t just attack someone’s character because their client is worried about the way this case is going,” he said.

Sanderson is seeking $300,000 from Paltrow while seeking $1 in nominal damages and covering her legal fees.

Terry Sanderson’s attorney has claimed that Gwyneth Paltrow is “concerned” about the way the trial is going.

An expert testifies about skiing and jogging

On Thursday, jurors heard testimony from Dr. Richard Bowen, who said Mr Sanderson’s injuries could only have been caused by blows from behind.

“He was hit by someone from the side and from behind, mind you, that person fell on him. People who fall don’t get broken ribs…it takes something else,” he said.

“If you had a choice between Mr. Sanderson hitting Mrs. Paltrow or Paltrow hitting Mr. Sanderson, you would have to choose Mrs. Paltrow hitting Mr. Sanderson from behind and falling on top of him to account for broken ribs.”

“If you were to compare two scenarios… there is only one that would explain the application of sufficient force to break those ribs, and that is Mrs. Paltrow hitting Mr. Sanderson from behind and she falls to the ground.

“At its core it was like a pillow, if you will.”

Gwyneth Paltrow claims the extent of the injuries is exaggerated

Paltrow says in her filing that Sanderson’s injuries were exaggerated because an examination was conducted with his doctor, which did not reveal anything lacking in his cognitive functions, according to the prosecution.

The movie star’s file says medical records show he was diagnosed with a “mild” concussion and spent “extended periods of time” abroad on vacation after the accident.

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

“It did not shock him or cause him to suffer a concussion, traumatic brain injury or broken ribs,” Ms Paltrow’s filing states.
