Do I have any grounds for a lawsuit against my mother regading the proceeds from a fire loss?

Question Details: About 2 years ago, we moved into my grandmother's house that was signed over to my mother a year or 2 previously. There was no home owners insurance on the home. A couple of days prior to us moving in, I asked my mother to put a homeowner's insurance policy on the home. She did and we paid the $38 premium each month. The funds were electronically transfered from my bank account every month, which I have proof of. The, about a year ago, the house was a total fire loss. My mother collected the 100k insurance policy and kept every penny for herself and chose not to rebuild. I realize the policy was in her name. Do I have any legal recourse at all against her since I was the one that paid that policy?
