How To Fight Failed Breath & Blood Test Results
Defense From A Chicago DUI Lawyer
Following an arrest for driving under the influence, a person will be taken
into custody and tested at the station with either a blood or breath test.
Both can be used to measure the degree of alcohol or drugs in the system.
Exact procedures are required to be followed when these tests are conducted;
however they frequently are not done standardly, opening the door to challenging
them as evidence that can be used against you.
Chicago DUI attorney is aware of the exact steps that must be legally taken when testing
with either one of these tests and can dispute the results.
Two Ways to Challenge BAC Results
breath test is taken with a Breathalyzer, an apparatus that measures the concentration
of alcohol in the system. This apparatus must be properly maintained,
certified and used only by someone trained and licensed to do so. Any
violation of these points can lead to the evidence gathered from this
test to be dismissed, possibly allowing your DUI charges to be dismissed as well.
blood alcohol test should be administered only by a person qualified to do so, and the results
determined by someone trained to evaluate the findings. Any deviation
from the correct procedures opens the door to challenging this as evidence.
Other Factors Affecting Blood & Breath Tests
Other factors that can affect a blood or breath test can be the method
in which the test was administered, as well as physical conditions the
person may have that could affect the results. Even the type of food eaten
immediately prior to a test could possibly affect the findings on a test.
