DJ AM escaped death last September (08), when he survived a plane crash that killed four and left him and Travis Barker severely burned.
A few months later he launched a lawsuit against the insurance companies that insured the pilots.
TMZ has just obtained documents from the suit DJ AM filed, and he's asking for $20 million dollars... minimum.
DJ AM wants at least $10 million in damages for medical bills, lost earnings and profits and other economic damages, and another $10 million for mental and physical pain he suffered and other "non-economic losses."
Do you think $20 million is a little excessive or is he entitled to the money considering the physical and mental damage he suffered?
