Contesting BAC Test Results
We’re here to help you contest your DUI conviction. When a person is arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) or operating under the influence of alcohol, they are often given an order that requires them to provide breath samples into a machine; this device then analyzes their blood-alcohol content and determines whether it was above 0.08% at the time of arrest. However, some defendants may challenge these results by requesting independent testing from another company on what’s called “an Intoxilyzer.”
Your Blood Alcohol Content Continues To Rise
You might be surprised to know that after you’ve had a few drinks, it can take as long as ninety minutes for alcohol to get absorbed in your bloodstream. The length of time varies based on several factors like weight and how much food is in the system.
If you drink alcohol and then go to work, it is possible that the wine will not be absorbed in your bloodstream until a minimum of thirty minutes later. But if there was any suspicion that the person may have been driving under the influence while intoxicated, they should always take a breathalyzer test as soon as possible when detained by law enforcement for suspected DUI.
If someone has had too much wine on their break at work but gets pulled over before going home because of being accused of drunk driving; without having their blood alcohol level tested first with an immediate breathalyzer test-the police officer can assume this individual wasn’t drinking or behind the wheel while intoxicated during detainment.
How can I avoid a license suspension for a DUI in Tennessee?
Tennessee is tough on DUIs, but that doesn’t mean your life has to be. If you’re pulled over and accused of driving under the influence, there may be options available if we learn what happened during your arrest. We’ll provide defense tactics necessary to fight any charges filed against an individual who’s been arrested with precautionary measures taken by us as well as stop the DMV from revoking driver’s licenses after being convicted of this offense.
This administrative license hearing to determine if a driver’s license will be suspended or not, is the first court date they attend only days after getting arrested for DUI. Since drivers have less than a few days in Tennessee before their licenses get automatically revoked with too many points on it, timing of how soon you take action- either by calling our office and discussing your options now or waiting until later when you’ve already missed that deadline – makes all the difference.
Can I avoid having to get the Ignition Interlock installed on my car in order to drive again?
An Ignition Interlock requirement is one of the worst new DUI consequences a driver will face. This device is an expensive Breathalyzer machine that needs wiring into any vehicle and can cost up to $800 per year just for maintenance fees!
It pays to fight your case with a professional from the start – but make sure you’ve got someone who knows what they’re doing. You can avoid high court costs and penalties if you know how to present yourself in front of the judge, which is not an easy task!
How can you fight DUI charges and win?
You may be wondering how to beat a case when it’s not just about the intoxication, but rather what indicators lead up to that arrest. Here’s the two main ways to fight a DUI charge in Tennessee:
Challenge the reason for the DUI stop
A police officer’s actions are dictated by the law, which is why it is important for them to have a proper legal basis before they can stop you. If an innocent citizen feels like their rights were violated during a traffic stop or while being pulled over, our lawyers can help prove that this evidence should be suppressed from your DUI/DWI case!
Challenge the BAC and field sobriety test
There are a number of ways the police can fail to properly administer field sobriety tests or blood alcohol (BAC) test, which may lead to inaccurately reported results. For example, if they didn’t give proper instructions on how to take these types of tests or what steps were taken wrong during testing – it is possible that any evidence from those failed efforts will be suppressed by law enforcement in court proceedings.
Our lawyers know and understand the field sobriety test manual produced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If you were arrested for drunk driving, call us to see if your case will be significantly weakened!
