My mom was admitted to a nursing home for demintia patients in December after a brief illness. On February 21st she fell in their dining room and broke her hip. She died March 25th. Can I put a claim in on her accidental death policy?
The death certificate said she died of natural causes: cardiac arrest. But I feel she died because of the fall.
She was doing well before the fall. In fact the nurses said she had been walking down the halls that morning, singing. After surgery, she never got better and quickly deteriorated.
