After 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed on February 26 by George Zimmerman inside the gated community in Sanford, the Martin family is now investigating possible claims with "all the insurance companies that might be applicable" according to their family attorney, Benjamin Crump.
The Orlando Sentinel reports,
Recent court filings show Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, has filed a claim for monetary damages against an insurance company for the Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners association in her 17-year-old son's death.
The insurance claim was revealed in paperwork filed last week by Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America. In those documents, the insurer seeks clarification of its responsibilities in the teen's death and asks a federal judge to absolve Travelers of liability.
The teen, who was staying at Retreat at Twin Lakes with his father's girlfriend, was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman Feb. 26 while returning from a local 7-Eleven store, authorities say. Prosecutors allege Zimmerman profiled and pursued the teen; Zimmerman says he fired in self defense after Trayvon attacked.
