as I understand at some point after his "impact" to her from behind they continued down and eventually went down with GP landing on top of him...that could account for his injuries and here lack of injuries other than some soreness. Would also be expected that she will come out better on top based on position and age and general condition.If someone crash-landed on Paltrow when she was skiing, I think she would have some injuries - perhaps broken ribs. The way Paltrow explains it, the plaintiff skied into her and hit her in the back. She did not testify that she fell on her face - which is what should happens when someone is hit from behind. According to Paltrow, she was hit from behind, she landed on him and rolled off him. She swore at him, told her son's instructor to provide her personal information and skied down the hill to join her children.
She claims to be an intermediate skier, yet she testified that her skis were so far apart that his skies fit between her skis. Beginner skiers do the snow plough, allowing a second person to fit skis between. Intermediate skiers keep their skis together.
