Seeking Justice and Compensation for Injured Victims
According to West Fertilizer Company's insurer, the company only had $1 million in liability coverage for the plant. This does not begin to cover the costs the community will incur as a result of the explosion. The Insurance Council of Texas estimates that the cost could exceed $100 million.
