DJ AM has finally filed suit in the private jet crash last September that killed four people.
He and Travis Barker were the only survivors of the six people in the plane. They literally leaped through a fireball to escape the burning wreckage of the plane after an aborted takeoff that resulted in a skidding crash.
According to TMZ, in the lawsuit filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, claims that as the jet reached takeoff speed the pilots became aware one or more of the tires had blown.
The suit contends that "rather than proceed to takeoff, they decided to abort and/or reject the takeoff in a negligent manner."
DJ AM is suing the estates of the two pilots, Sarah Lemmon and James Blank, both of whom were killed in the crash. He’s also suing Clay Lacy Aviation, Global Exec Aviation, Inter Travel & Services Inc., Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. and Learjet.
The lawsuit is going for pain and suffering, lost earnings, property damage, past and future medical and health-related expenses and punitive damages.
Travis Barker was first to file a similar suit. So did his assistant’s wife and child.
