There are many people who falsely believe that just because prosecutors have certain types of evidence against them in their DUI (driving under the influence) cases, they do not stand a chance of winning their cases. The reality is that there are actually many ways to challenge DUI evidence such as breath and blood test results and the results of field sobriety tests. While these types of tests have become the standard for determining whether drivers are intoxicated, there are many situations in which the results of such tests can be highly flawed - whether those flaws are based on human or mechanical error.
At Bayer & Black, P.C., our Fairfield County lawyers can challenge the evidence in your DUI case, raising questions about things such as the officer reports, officer testimony and drug recognition expert testimony. When you bring your case to our firm, you get to benefit from more than 40 years of collective legal experience!
Evidence That May Be Disputed in Your Drunk Driving Case
Here are some of the many things that can be proven in order to contest DUI evidence:
- Technical errors with breathalyzer devices and blood testing equipment
- Improper calibration or maintenance of breathalyzer device
- Improper storage of blood samples
- Defendant's physiology, medical conditions or disabilities that could have affected test performance
- Defendant's consumption or use of products that could have led to false breath test readings
- Incorrect application of a breath, blood or field sobriety tests by officers or medical personnel
- Inconsistences between officer testimony and officer reports
- Unlawful stop or arrest by law enforcement officer
- Standard Field Sobriety Tests improperly administered
