LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, has filed a lawsuit claiming negligence and breach of contract in the September plane crash he survived.

Goldstein and drummer Travis Barker were the only survivors of the learjet crash in South Carolina.

Goldstein's lawsuit seeks a jury trial, but doesn't specify how much money he hopes to receive for loss of earnings, medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

The lawsuit claims the plane's owners and operators acted in a careless and negligent manner and that Goldstein has been seriously harmed — physically and financially — by the crash.

Federal investigators have not yet determined the cause of the crash.
