DJ AM Suing Learjet, Goodyear, Others For $20 Million Over Plane Crash

Posted Mar 17, 2009

Adam Goldstein (also known as DJ AM) was in a major plane accident last year with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.  Those two were the only survivors last September.  When they were flying, they were able to escape by sliding off the wings.  Now Goldstein wants financial damages paid to him.

Goldstein is seeking $20 million in damages total.  He wants about $10 million for medical expenses, lost earnings, and profit.  He also wants another $10 million for all the mental and physical pain that occurred since the flight that went down on September 19.

Goldstein is going after Learjet, Goodyear, and three charter operators in December.  The court documents filed this past Friday revealed the financial details.  This complain was an addition to a wrongful death lawsuit that him and Barker filed against the same parties.  Barker and Goldstein blamed those companies for the accidents.  The accident was because a tire had blown out during take-off.

Barker and DJ AM were touring for a mixtape that they put together at the time of the accident.
