San Jose DUI Defense Lawyer
Decipher Evidence in Breath and Blood Tests
At The Law Offices of Adam Allen Arant, Esq. we provide high-quality criminal defense for those charged with
DUI. After an individual is arrested for DUI, they will be asked to submit to a blood or breath test. Breath and blood tests determine the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of the individual, or in other words how much alcohol is in the blood.
Anything hitting .08% or over is considered to be over the legal limit and will often result in a DUI These tests can be successfully challenged by knowledgeable legal counsel and can potentially be dismissed. It is essential that you immediately contact a knowledgeable lawyer for proven legal guidance, if you failed a blood or breath test or refused to take one. By not taking the test which is required by California law, it could mean added criminal charges and penalties.
The Importance of DUI Hearings
If you refuse these tests after being arrested, your license is automatically suspended. You have only 10 days to request a DMV hearing after the DUI has been issued. At this hearing, a San Jose DUI attorney from our firm could push to have your license reinstated. If you failed a breath or blood test, it's important you know that these tests are not 100% accurate all the time. Our firm can thoroughly investigate BAC testing results, and assess whether mistakes were made along the line. For example, blood tests can be tainted by non-sterile containers, or a lack of sufficient preservatives. If the breathalyzer apparatus is not carefully maintained at all times, or not operated by properly trained individuals, it can alter the results. We can employ these and other potential defenses against a negative test result.
