The West Independent School District Sues Argonaut Insurance Co., Trident Insurance Services and the Texas Association of Public Educators to Cover Blast Costs

The West Independent School District in central Texas is suing its insurance provider to cover the district's full $53 million claim from a 2013 fertilizer plant explosion that killed 15 people. The lawsuit filed May 20 in Waco's 170th State District Court claims Argonaut Insurance Co., Trident Insurance Services and the Texas Association of Public Educators breached contracts and failed to meet Texas insurance code standards. The school district reported at least $53 million in damages from the explosion that hit the town between Waco and Dallas on April 17, 2013. District officials said Argonaut offered to pay the district $30 million to cover the losses. The district received $20.8 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. With the insurance settlement in litigation, West is proceeding with construction efforts. The district will have a smaller high school and no longer need or use an intermediate school.
