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.
