Breath and Blood Tests in DUI Cases

Long Island DUI Defense Attorney

Breathalyzer Test

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.

Challenging Breath and Blood Test Evidence in a DUI Case

There are very specific procedures in testing for alcohol intoxication, and any departure in testing could lead to false readings that cannot be trusted. At Prime & O'Brien, LLP, our Long Island DUI lawyers carefully evaluate every detail of each client's DUI charge, including how the breath or blood test was administered. In some cases, the testing is improperly administered, and these cases open the door to seeking a dismissal of charges.

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Community service
  • License suspension
  • A criminal record for DUI
