Alison Silva is suing Reeves over a March 2007 accident in which he fell while photographing the “Matrix” star behind the wheel of his Porsche. Reeves was pulling out of a parking space, and Silva says he was knocked down by the actor’s car.

A judge has already said Silva can’t recoup punitive damages during the trial and thrown out other claims. The photographer is trying to prove Reeves acted negligently and receive money for his medical bills and lost income.
