Three months after surviving a deadly plane crash, DJ AM (born Adam Goldstein) has sued the individuals allegedly responsible for the accident.
According to TMZ, the popular DJ filed the lawsuit Tuesday (December 23) in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming the pilots intentionally disregarded the dangerous take-off conditions which included one of the jet's tires being blown out.
"Rather than proceed to takeoff," the suit reads, "they decided to abort and/or reject the takeoff in a negligent manner."
DJ AM has decided to sue the estates of both pilots who died in the crash, Clay Lacy Aviation, Global Exec Aviation, Inter Travel & Services Inc, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co plus Learjet.
He is seeking damages for enduring pain and sufferings, lost earnings, property damages, past and future medical needs and health-related expenses along with punitive damages.
No information has been released on the trial date.
As previously reported by SOHH, DJ AM and ex-Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker survived a fiery Learjet crash that claimed four lives last September. Both Barker and AM survived the crash despite suffering second and third degree burns.
In related news, DJ AM recently linked with Jay-Z to help celebrate the rebirth of the Hollywood Palladium in California.
The hip-hop mogul also tagged him along throughout additional concerts over the fall.
