With this situation things could seem quite complicated but you should definitely have a case. You will probably need to get a claims lawyer to help you figure things out.

In the meantime here is a little bit of information that could help you understand how this type of situation usually works. If your mother dies before the life insurance policy for your father has been distributed to her, it will still be her asset. Which means that the death benefit will now be a part of her death benefit as well. It will have to go through the entire process with her insurance company as it did with your father's. Depending on what her insurance policy says and how everything should be doled out both death benefits could be yours. In order for that to happen though your mother would have to have put you down as her sole beneficiary. If she has put you down as her sole beneficiary then you will receive her death benefits as well as your father's death benefits.
