Lawsuit: Plane Crash Trauma Led to DJ AM's Overdose

Posted on

DJ AM’s mother is picking up where her son left off in his legal fight against Learjet.

Andrea Gross has amended his $20 million lawsuit against the plane manufacturer, the pilots’ estates and others by adding a wrongful death claim, Los Angeles court papers show.

“The crash ultimately caused Adam Goldstein’s death at a later date,” the papers state.

Friends and associates of the musician have widely blamed his trauma from the September 2008 plane crash as leading to his fatal relapse in August.

A trial is set for March 2. A number of opposing lawsuits have been filed in the case.

Learjet has previously denied all responsibility for the crash.
