Blood, Breath And Urine Testing
Blood, breath and urine testing are three of the main types of evidence that prosecutors use in DUI cases. However, just because your results were positive, it does not mean the government has a slam-dunk case against you. There are countless scientific issues that can impact the accuracy of these tests and rights that you should have been afforded during the government’s DUI investigation. Unfortunately, not all DUI defense lawyers understand how to properly challenge this evidence.
Positive Blood Or Breath Test Results? You Don’t Have To Plead Guilty.
At Daniels & Rothman, DUI defense is one of our primary areas of focus. Attorney Jeffrey Rothman has dedicated his career to fighting DUI charges. He is one of the few defense attorneys in our community who consistently takes his DUI cases to trial — and wins.
Mr. Rothman has spent a great deal of time learning about the science behind evidential breath, blood and urine testing. He understands what the scientific community has proven — just because a blood, breath or urine test is done, doesn’t mean the test was done according to quality standards. And it doesn’t mean that the positive reading is accurate.
When you work with our law firm, we will attack the accuracy and admissibility of your test results from every angle. Backed by Mr. Rothman’s experience and knowledge, there are a significant number of issues we can explore in order to have the positive results discredited or thrown out. This can include:
- Radio interference with the Intoxilyzer machine
- Mouth alcohol wrongly incorporated into the breath test
- Intoxilyzer operator error
- Old/unreliable Intoxilyzer machine
- Mishandling of blood or urine sample/improper chain of custody
- Failure to refrigerate blood sample
- Failure to follow the requirements of implied consent
- And many other issues
In some cases, testing errors show a blood alcohol level over .08 (the legal limit) when drivers were actually below that amount. In other cases, a driver may have been over .08 but if there were errors in any step of the testing, we will fight to have that evidence thrown out as well.
The bottom line is, when you work with our law firm, we will not plead you out for having positive test results. We are fighters. We know how to challenge evidence and block the prosecutors from using it against you.
