The man suing Gwyneth Paltrow and Deer Valley Ski resort where the actress allegedly plowed into him while skiing in 2016, claims he was threatened by employees of the posh resort and left face down in the snow!

According to court documents obtained by exclusively by RadarOnline, Dr.  Terry Sanderson said Gwyneth's ski instructor, Eric Christiansen, allegedly threatened him instead of calling for help right away during the Feb. 26, 2016 incident.

Gwyneth has filed a countersuit denying Sanderson's claims. The resort also filed motion to dismiss the suit, but Sanderson fired back and claims Christiansen lied on an indecent report.

Sanderson said the Gwyneth's ski instructor made "aggressive movements" and verbally attacked him while Sanderson was semi-conscious and on the ground, causing Sanderson "further severe emotional distress."

"Before Ms. Paltrow skis away, Mr. Christiansen is towering over Plaintiff berating him for something Plaintiff did not do," wrote Sanderson's attorneys in an affidavit. "Upon seeing Ms. Paltrow ski away, Mr. Christiansen abruptly, aggressively and inappropriately pulled Terry to a standing position and said to (Mr. Ramon) in effect, 'Do you realize your buddy just took out Gwyneth Paltrow.'"

Sanderson said he sustained various injuries, including four broken ribs and him brain injury.

Sanderson added Christiansen inflicted even more injuries because the ski instructor picked him up off the snow before medical personnel were able to assess how badly he was injured.

"The NIED claim against Deer Valley begins with Plaintiff lying prone, injured, waking form a concussion and easing for air with 4 broken ribs," Sanderson's attorneys wrote in the document. "Nearby was Mr. Christiansen, the Deer Valley ski instructor for Ms. Paltrow who did not see the collision but wrongfully assumed it was caused by Plaintiff. Mr. Christiansen skies aggressively and directly toward Plaintiff making false accusations against Plaintiff, screaming 'What did you do, what did you do!'"
