Challenging Blood Tests in Florida
Challenging Your DUI Blood Test in Orlando
Blood is sometimes taken after an arrest to determine a driver's blood alcohol level when they are suspected of DUI. The assumption is that the blood tested will reveal the BAC of the individual while they were behind the wheel; however, this is often not the case. The Orlando DUI defense lawyers from our firm can challenge the results of a blood test and fight to get your charges dropped or dismissed.
At Ali & Blankner, we believe that everyone deserves the best legal defense possible, and this is what we strive to provide our clients. We have more than 85 years of combined experience under our belts and have been defending the rights of clients since 1986. In that time, we have taken on countless DUI cases and continually challenged results of blood tests.
As former prosecutors, we know how to find weaknesses and errors in these procedures, so call our Orlando DUI firm today!
Contended Results from Chemical Tests
Blood test samples are handled by several individuals on their way to being tested and eventually turned into evidence to be used in court. At each point, it can be argued that the integrity of the sample has been compromised which means it cannot be used against you in court.
Points of contention include the following:
- Collection of blood: Most people drawing blood have a limited background in this area, which means there is a risk of contamination or other potential errors during collection.
- Storage of the sample: Delays and improper storage can also affect the sample, such as changes in temperature and the presence of bacteria, yeast, or sugar.
- Actual blood testing: Improper use of a gas chromatograph can result in false readings, as it cannot determine if the alcohol being measured was present in the defendant's blood.
- Rising alcohol content: In some instances, an individual may wait extensive time to get a blood test, meaning the results are not accurate to the time they were actually driving.
All this goes to show that even if you are found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or more in a blood test, this does not automatically equal a conviction for DUI. Our Orlando DUI lawyers know this well and can challenge your test results to make sure you are treated fairly. Our firm is committed to the highest standard of excellence and passionate about pursuing the best possible outcome on your behalf.
