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."

What a D@#K! First of all can they finish the invetigation on what happened! Second of all aren't enough hard working pions losing their jobs without some rich punk trying to take everyone down. I'm from Wichita and the aircraft industry is hanging on by a thread. A law suit for that amount could ruin many families lives. Yes it was a tragedy, but he survived, probably thanks to the pilot & co-pilot which at some point he also named in a lawsuit. Just curious but are the victims famialies suing? I haven't heard. I've lost any respect I've ever had for him!

The guy is a no talent punk. Give him $10 and a ham sandwich instead.

I don't think peole should be judging him for suing. You have no idea how painful his burns must have been, much less how traumatic this horrible experience must have been for him. There's something called traumatic grief, which is when you lose a loved one in a traumatic event. He's going to probably need therapy for a long time. Also, famous DJ's in Hollywood make a lot more money than a normal DJ. If someone was negligent and that lead to this crash then they should pay for it. It's that simple. Also, people get money when they have little fender benders and get mild concussions. Severe burns are incredibly painful things. The trauma he is experiencing must be completely debilitating. So leave him alone.

His life isn't even worth $20. Is it possible to sue djam for surviving the crash?

DJ am should wake up and smell the coffee! If it werent for travis barker who wanted to sit in back, he would have had a guillotine effect like his little buddies in front.!! Maybe he'll step in front of a car in LA, anything can kill, not just planes.....

Famous people get it...Regular people don't    

Either way, it was a horrifying experience for all parties. It is ironic however that "famous" people can afford good attornies and "regular" folk cannot. Famous people can get 20M and regular people who die cannot. Point, 7 people died in aircraft accident in Panama City, Panama. AirTrek Air Ambulance. Did the family of those who parished get 20 M....NO!

First of all, I am sure all of you who have hoped he dies or wished he would have, have taken a good look in the mirror after saying that about someone you do not know. He and Travis were so very lucky to have survived that horrifying crash. The burns they sustained were extremely painful and they are still undergoing surgeries because of them. Not to mention the pain of watching people they loved die. And yes, the victims families have also sued, and deserve every penny the get. How such hateful people could post such nasty things about Adam, who by all accounts is a loving and caring man, I do not understand. But I guess that is why you live in your parents basement and he has a career.

Adam deserves it. He experienced a horrific event, because the jet carrier was negligent.
He used to live on a airplane and travel to gigs all around the world.
Now he only takes gigs if he could drive or travel by land. That must be hard!
