I would like to know if I should hire an attorney for the following

This answer was rated:

I would like to know if I should hire an attorney for the following reason:
My husband, Mauro, had his yearly blood work done. The results showed the red and white blood counts were going down, but still in the normal range.
My husband's history, he had been a smoker, his brother passed at 45 of leukemia, his Mother passed of leukemia, and his cousin died at 30 of AML leukemia.
Early Detection (which the Doctor had), and Mauro's history were RED FLAGS. That day he should have been sent to a hematologist, but did not.
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.

Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. I am sorry for your loss. Based upon what you stated above, you should certainly consider speaking with an attorney, who handles medical malpractice / wrongful death claims and allowing them to look over the facts of the case, to determine if there is a valid cause of action. Typically, medical malpractice claims are taken on a contingency basis, so you would only have to pay the attorney, if you recovered. The attorney fees are paid out of the judgment or settlement, so it would not hurt to consult with someone at this time. The consultation should be free as well. This way, you have closure and will know if there is a valid case.

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above.
