I don't know what "was exposed" means. He was naked? What does his "cane showing" mean? Why does any of that suggest that the attendant knew or should have known that the 81 year old was at risk of death?
Whether any of this adds up to wrongful death depends on a lot of factors that...Read more »

And what I meant by “proven” was that his employee finally admitted to the forgery (under oath) and he amends his original declaration and apologized to me and over $30k is returned to me over one year later.
