During the seventh day of trial, Terry Sanderson assures that some of the damage caused by the accident is reflected in three moments of risk in which he did not make “the correct medical decisions”, something that he calls unusual in his personality.
The first was a blackout that lasted a long time, the second was a time when she cut her leg damaging her femoral artery while cutting a cardboard box, and the last was an accidental overdose of oxycodone.
“Right now in this trial do you blame Ms. Paltrow for these three near-death experiences?” asked the lawyer for the “Shakespeare in Love” actress, Stephen Owens, to which Sanderson replied: “Yes, it’s very unusual for me not to make good medical decisions.”
Owens also showed Sanderson a series of photographs that were taken from his social networks in which the man was observed accompanied by his family on various trips and doing some physical activities, such as boating, skiing, nature walks, among others, after the accident.
Sanderson’s response in the case against Paltrow
Sanderson claims to have traveled to Peru, Costa Rica, Thailand, Morocco and various European countries, as well as some US cities.
“(Traveling) was part of the healing treatment that was recommended to me by several neurologists and cognitive therapists, they advised me to return to the routine,” Sanderson said, noting that he had some problems during the trips because “I couldn’t do it alone.”
The man also emphasizes that on many occasions he made an effort to show that “he did not have any mental problem.”
Sanderson sued Paltrow in 2019 accusing her of being the cause of a ski accident on a slope at Deer Valley Resort in Utah (USA).
The testimony of the retired optometrist contrasts with that of Paltrow, who narrated her version of events before the court last Friday, in which she assured that it was she who received the blow from behind by the 76-year-old man.
