There is no illegality in demanding Postmortem Report by the Insurance Company, that too when you have the report with you. If life insurance policy of your mother has rider of accidental death benefit, the Insurance Company will investigate the cause of accident and / or death. If there is no adverse report like presence of alcohol or any drug in the blood or body, the report will not harm you. Rather the settlement of claims will become faster. If the policy does not cover accidental benefit, death claim will be paid, if death is proved, except in the exceptional cases of suicide etc.
