DJ AM Wants a Cool $20 Mil in Jet Crash

3/16/2009 7:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DJ AMWe've just obtained new documents in DJ AM's lawsuit against the company that booked the jet that crashed. The surviving passenger wants $20 million -- minimum.

The way it breaks down, DJ AM wants at least $10 mil in damages for medical bills, lost earnings and profits and other economic damages. And he wants another $10 mil for mental and physical pain and suffering and other "non-economic losses."

Get a grip people, he can ask for any amount of money he wants.....it doesn't mean he'll actually get it!

He does deserve some form of monetary compensation, if he feels like asking for a HUNDRED million he can do whatever he wants to do. All they can do is say no! LMAO

i see room for debate for those who think its extreme and for those who think he's entitled to the money. my question is, how much is for "pain and suffering" and how much is for "lost wages"? because i had no idea who dj am was until his plane crashed and i can't imagine he would have made 20 million (or even close) in the month, or so he was laid up in the hospital..is the bulk of that $20 mil is for pain and suffering?? why is it that he thinks his pain and suffering would be worth more than any of ours? i'm sure it has something to do with sticking it to the company, for the loss of his friends, but come on man... when is enough-enough?

I DO THINK THEY DESERVE SOMETHING....
THEY WERE HURT VERY BADLY IN THIS ACCIDENT..
BUT 20 MILL COME ON NOW THATS A LITTLE RIDICULOUS I THINK THEY SHOULD BE GIVEN COST OF MEDICAL AND SOME PAIN AND SUFFERING..
BUT NOT 20MILL
AND DEFF. NOT 20 MILL COMING FROM THE PIOLITS FAMILY THAT WOULD BE INSANE...
AND IF ANYONE IS TO BLAME IN REALITY IS THE PASSENGERS ON THE PLANE FOR GETTING ON IT....
AND THE TIRE COMPANYS BUT CAN YOU HONESTLY BLAME ANY ONE FOR A ACCIDENT LIKE THIS I DONT THINK SO....

Puh-lease. This guy is such a loser. He should be lucky to be alive. His Jew father should have taught him to be financially smart and protect what he had in the first place (meaning BUY INSURANCE, BUTT-MUNCH!). He's entitled to some compensation for the trauma -- but that comes from the aviation company, and not to the tune of $20 mil. If he sues the estates of the pilots, what he'll get when karma comes back around won't be pretty, but he'll deserve every bit of it.

What is it with these Jewish people? The first lawsuit in the Buffalo crash was filed by the family of that Jewish Cantor. Her body wasn't even cold and most of the other passengers hadn't even been buried yet, but her sons had already hired a California lawyer (Amherst, NY kids hiring a CALIFORNIA lawyer????) and sued Continental Airlines for millions. The investigation into the crash had barely begun. Families were still identifying bodies, and these Jewish boys had already filed their multi-multi-million dollar lawsuit. With no cause yet determined, how do they know their mother's aerosol hairspray can didn't explode and cause the crash? I mean, seriously. What's the rush to sue? She'll be as gone in a year as she is now. Couldn't they have a little respect for the other victims and their families, or was it really necessary to file that lawsuit within days of the crash and make a really awful situation even worse?

He totally deserves it! What they went through is horrific! I love how people who have never been through anything as serious jump in to judge him. Somebody needs to be held responsible. Those tires should have been inspected before take off. Also, to the person who said no one knew him before that is untrue. He is in all the rag magazines even before this and is the highest paid DJ out here in CA. He was well on his way to making that kind of money before the crash.
