No. All monies of a deceased is gathered in to their estate, then all debts of the deceased are paid, then legacies are paid out. Policies payable to a person are payable to that person.
Check the laws for your jurisdiction. Most states have specified what expenses can be reimbursed by the estate.
funeral expenses are not deductible on an individuals tax return as they are not medical expenses. However, if and individual has an estate, then the costs are deductible on their estate tax return (form 1041).
Most wills have a provision providing for payment of funeral expenses out of the proceeds of the estate. Check the deceased's will to see if this indeed is the case. If so, a beneficiary (or any other person for that matter) who pays the funeral expenses should be reimbursed. As a side note, the expenses associated with the funeral are usually deductible expenses when filing the estate's inheritance tax return. Check with either an estate attorney or the register of wills (or Orphan's Court) of the county where the will was probated (or will be probated). You should be able to get the answers you need from the register of wills.

That legal document would be the basis for your lawsuit. You can check with a local lawyer in your area, but you might need to go to the place where the contract for payment for the funeral was signed in order to sue someone.

The beneficiary of a life insurance policy is not responsible for paying for the deceased's funeral cost using the money from the proceeds of the life insurance policy. The estate of the deceased is responsible for paying for the funeral cost from the proceeds of the estate.

No, one would assume you would go to your mothers funeral regardless of reward
The funeral expenses should be paid for out of an individual's estate before anything is paid to beneficiaries. This is usual language in wills and trusts. This must be paid for when services are rendered. However if a person is still living they can prearrange their planning with a licensed funeral director prior to this event. Usually if the individual is deceased the Executor and or Trustee will take care of this.
