Breath & Blood Tests

When one has been pulled over under suspicion of drunk driving, they usually have a breath test administered to them. They may also have a blood test, particularly when suspected of being under the influence of a drug. These tests play a large part in any DUI charges, and the evidence that law enforcement uses to arrest you is based upon the results of the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that registers. If you are .08% BAC or higher you will most likely be charged with a DUI. If you have a commercial driver's license, the BAC level is .04% or higher, and if an underage individual, there is zero tolerance -- .01% or above will result in an arrest.

Breath and Blood Testing Flaws

Challenging the results of the test can assist with your defense. It is known, even by the manufacturer of the breath testing equipment, that there is an inherent margin of error in the testing. On top of this fact, there is also the fact that the equipment used must be carefully maintained and calibrated, per a specific schedule. The actual administration of the test must be done in a specific manner, and this is often violated as well. These items are all possible defenses for your DUI charges, and Attorney Joshua S. Davidson is well-skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of challenging test results.

In blood testing, there is also an inherent margin of error, and it may be necessary to get another blood test quickly if you are arrested for driving under the influence. Anticoagulant medications in the blood can cause an inaccurate test result, as well as other errors that are common in any blood test. Consider that even physicians when getting a reading on a blood test will require another one to ensure that the results are correct. It is critical that your first action after your arrest (or prior if you can) is to contact the Law Offices of Joshua S. Davidson to advise you how to proceed if you have been arrested for a DUI of any type.

Contact Tempe DUI Defense Attorney Joshua S. Davidson if you have been arrested and charged with DUI and had a breath or blood test administered to you.
