Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter testified that her mother was “visibly upset” after a 2016 collision with another skier, which she says left her with life-changing injuries.
The Hollywood actress’ trial has heard a sworn statement from her daughter, Apple Martin, about the fatal crash at the Utah resort.
The 18-year-old’s mother later reported being in pain.
Terry Sanderson sued Ms Paltrow, alleging that she hit on him.
The retired ophthalmologist is seeking $300,000 (£245,000) in damages.
The Oscar winner is suing for $1 plus legal fees.
Both Apple and his brother, 16-year-old Moses Martin, were expected to testify in person on Tuesday.
But due to time restrictions imposed by the judge, transcripts of their earlier statements were instead read to the court.
Both teenagers – children of Ms Paltrow and her ex-husband, Coldplay star Chris Martin – did not witness the crash.
But they said in the affidavit that Ms. Paltrow told them that a skier had hit her and knocked her down at Deer Valley Resort.
Apple, who was 12 at the time, said her mother was “shocked and obviously upset.”
In his testimony, Moses, who was 9 years old, recalled seeing his mother on the ground after the accident.
According to the boy’s affidavit, he went to the scene and heard Ms Paltrow say: “What the f-word, you ran at me.”
The children’s depositions were read Tuesday after seven hours of testimony from expert witnesses on human anatomy and neurological rehabilitation.
Ms Paltrow and her two children were skiing with her husband Brad Falchuck and their two children when the accident happened.
Mr Falczak has already said he is not an eyewitness and it is unclear whether he will be called to testify.
Mr Sanderson’s two daughters have already given evidence in court.
Polly Sanderson-Grasham and Shay Herath said last week that their father had changed significantly since the accident.
Ms Sanderson-Gresham said her father, who was once “outgoing” and “collective”, was now “distracted” and “frustrated easily”.
He added that his father was “obsessed” with apologizing to Ms Paltrow.
