Breath and Blood Tests in DUI Cases
Long Island DUI Defense Attorney
The most significant piece of evidence in a
DUI case is the breath or blood test evidence. This evidence is counted upon
to be the pivotal point in getting a conviction. It cannot be assumed
that if the breath or blood test indicated alcohol intoxication that the
case is flawless – this may not be the case.
Issues that Can Occur
There are many issues involved in chemical testing, and any error in procedure
can lead to an incorrect determination regarding DUI. For example, if
the breath testing unit has not been maintained or calibrated properly,
the testing results cannot be trusted as accurate. How the breath test
is administered can also impact the outcome.
