Gwyneth Paltrow is facing a trial in Utah over a ski crash in 2016, with the accuser claiming that the actress left him injured on the mountain and didn’t send help.

The trial is set to start on Tuesday and will last for eight days, but it remains unclear if the Hollywood actress will testify.

Terry Sanderson, a retired optometrist, claimed that Paltrow was skiing out of control and knocked him out, leaving him with a concussion and four broken ribs. Sanderson referred to the incident as a “hit and run” and is seeking $3.1 million in damages. However, Paltrow countersued, claiming that Sanderson plowed into her from behind, delivering a full “body blow.”

Paltrow’s counterclaim alleges that Sanderson hit her and that she was shaken by the collision and stopped skiing with her family for the day. The claim adds that Sanderson apologized to her and said he was fine.

The incident has been the subject of legal proceedings for several years, with Sanderson previously saying that he waited almost three years to file the lawsuit because he had problems with lawyers and could not function properly because of the concussion. The trial might see Paltrow testify and is likely to focus on the conflicting accounts of the crash given by Paltrow and Sanderson.

Paltrow is seeking “symbolic damages in the amount of $1, plus her costs and attorney’s fees to defend this meritless claim,” her lawsuit said. She has also vowed to donate any additional funds potentially awarded by the jury to a charitable organization.

The incident occurred on a beginner run at Deer Valley Resort, and Sanderson claimed that a Deer Valley ski instructor filed a false incident report saying Paltrow didn’t cause the crash. Sanderson waited for nearly three years to file the lawsuit, citing problems with attorneys and his inability to function properly because of the concussion.
