Travis Barker wants someone to pay.

 

The drummer, who survived a deadly plane crash two months ago, is suing Bombardier Inc., Clay Lacy Aviation and Goodyear Tire and Rubber, claiming that jet was defective.

The lawsuit, filed by Travis and Thelma Martin Still, the mother of Charles "Che" Still (Trav's bodyguard who died in the crash), alleges "one or more of the tires failed leaving tire debris and portions of airplane components along the 8,600 foot runway," as well as, "a negligent attempt to abort takeoff." It also says, "It's landing gear, tires, wheels, brakes, reverse thrust system, squat switches and component parts were not airworthy."

Travis was hospitalized for weeks after the crash, in which he suffered second and third degree burns on his hands and lower body. He is suing for "pain and suffering, mental anguish, psychological and emotional distress and disfigurement and pre-impact fear of death and burning."

I can't imagine he's not going to win this case, right?
