When you get hurt and want to hire a lawyer, you need to ensure that your attorney has your best interests at heart. If you have sustained an injury through a person’s or company’s negligence, you may not feel like you can trust anyone right now.

How Do You Know Your Lawyer Has Your Best Interests at Heart?
When you hire an injury lawyer, you can count on your attorney to keep your best interest at heart because professional codes and regulatory bodies are in place to require them to put their clients’ needs first.
Every attorney is bound by a code of professional ethics called the Model Rules of Professional Conduct established by the American Bar Association. Attorneys have many obligations under these rules, including a duty to be fair and upfront about fees, keep client information confidential, and act in the client’s best interests at all times.
An attorney who fails to follow the rules and who does not have his or her clients’ best interest at heart could be subject to disciplinary action and potentially even lose his license to practice law. Professional malpractice claims also can be filed against an attorney who fails to fulfill the duty owed to clients. Attorneys are said to have a fiduciary duty, which is the highest duty one person can owe to another under the law.
