Gwyneth Paltrow Facing Negligence Suit Over Ski Accident

Gwyneth Paltrow is facing a negligence lawsuit this week as the trial begins in a ski incident from seven years ago. Terry Sanderson, who filed the suit, claims that Paltrow collided with him at Park City, Utah, knocking him down and leaving him with traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, and disfigurement.

Paltrow, however, counters that Sanderson was the one who crashed into her and caused her minor injuries. She claims that he apologized immediately after the incident.

The plaintiff was seeking over $3 million in damages but this has since been reduced to $300,000. Paltrow is now seeking just a dollar in damages and attorney fees.

The case involves a Deer Valley ski instructor, who did not see the crash but skied over and saw Sanderson lying in the snow. Paltrow claims that the instructor did witness the collision, though he was removed from the initial petition alongside Deer Valley Resort Company after a judge limited the line of argument about the hit and run.

The trial for the Gwyneth Paltrow lawsuit is expected to last a week, and will be determined by a judge without a jury, as per Utah court rules. The outcome of the case could have implications for future cases concerning negligence on the ski slopes.

At the end of this week’s trial, it could have implications beyond just Gwyneth Paltrow and Terry Sanderson. If negligence is found on the ski slopes, future cases may also be affected.

That’s why it’s important for anyone who has been in a similar situation to contact Ayuda California for legal advice.
