Breath Tests & Blood Tests

How can you challenge the machine?

Knowing the ins and outs of how the Draeger breath testing machine works is imperative for your attorney. The Draeger is rife with sources of error that can come from basic science, or the specifics of your case. Sometimes even physical ailments and / or sickness can affect the machine. It is vital that your attorney knows how to mount these challenges.

These sources of error can not only help you with your DUI case, but can also help with your DOL hearing. Don't forget that you only have one week from the date of your arrest to act on the DOL paperwork. It's vital that you send this in properly. Call us now for your free consultation so we can start helping you through the process and protecting your rights.

Are breath and blood tests always correct?

While breath and blood tests are commonly believed to provide inconclusive evidence, this is not, in fact, the case. Both tests are subject to erroneous results for a variety of reasons. Even if you apparently failed these tests, don't give up hope. Contact our office right away and I can establish that the evidence against you is reviewed as to its validity. If these factors are not investigated in your case, it opens the door to injustices that can have a very negative effect on your life.

A breath test depends on its accuracy of being correctly calibrated and properly administered. If the equipment is malfunctioning, it may give a false reading. Blood tests have similar potentials for error. If a blood sample is mishandled its integrity can be compromised. It must also be confirmed to include the correct ratio of certain ingredients of the blood, otherwise it can give misleading results. This is not always done and other human error can cause inaccurate results. For these reasons, an independent laboratory should always be used to check the initial findings.
