Frequent Las Vegas celebrity DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) who survived a fiery Learjet crash in Southern Carolina in September has sued on December 23 several companies and the estates of the two plane’s pilots for negligence and breach of contract.
The deadly crash claimed the lives of everyone aboard except Goldstein and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, who also suffered major burns in the accident.
The suit reportedly does not specify the amount Goldstein hopes to receive for damages including pain and suffering, medical expenses and loss of wages. It does, however, seek a trial by jury.
The cause of the South Carolina crash has not yet been determined, but it is suspected that a faulty tire may have played a role in the crash.
The duo are set to perform their first show live together since the crash on New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles at the Wiltern under the moniker TRVSDJAM. Their performance will be streamed live to nine other U.S. cities.
