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.

The defense attorney delves into the details of the case

Buehler said his client was seriously injured as a result of a collision with Gwyneth Paltrow at Deer Valley Resort in 2016.

“Sometimes it’s just a bump or a bruise, sometimes it’s a scary or a close call, but sometimes it’s worse. Sometimes it’s a broken bone or a concussion or permanent brain damage and that’s what happened here.”

Ms. Paltrow, who has been skiing since she was three years old, has been to Deer Valley no fewer than six times, according to the defense. On the day of the accident, Ms. Paltrow was reportedly visiting the resort with her family and four ski instructors.

The defense begins with opening arguments

During opening arguments, attorneys for Terry Sanderson said that Gwyneth Paltrow’s “conscious disregard for everyone else skating” caused his client serious injuries, including four broken ribs and permanent damage.

“All skiers know that when they’re skiing down the mountain, it’s their responsibility to pay attention, to look down, and to give right-of-way to the skiers below,” Mr. Sanderson’s attorney said.

“Because the skiers below them can’t see behind them as they turn left and right to control their speed, especially when there are a lot of people down the mountain, it is the responsibility of the downhill skiers to concede the right-of-way to the skiers below.”

The jury won’t hear the arguments about “hit-and-run.”

Ruling on preliminary motions, Judge Kent Holmberg decided that the jury in Gwyneth Paltrow’s skiing accident trial would not hear arguments about the alleged “hit and run”.

Judge Holmberg said he reviewed enough evidence that Paltrow stopped and made sure Sanderson did not suffer any serious injuries before he left.

The jury will hear arguments from both sides about who had the right-of-way during the accident. Sanderson claims he was downhill and therefore had a right-of-way, while Paltrow claims it was the other way around.
