BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration)

Challenging Breath & Blood Tests

Many DWI cases hinge on evidence provided by tests for intoxication, including the breathalyzer and blood tests. A driver who is caught with a BAC of .08% or higher, as measured by one of these tests, will be arrested and charged with DWI. The DWI penalties in North Carolina are serious and it is important to fight your charges in order to avoid heavy fines, jail time and long-term penalties such as steep increases in insurance rates. Fortunately for you, if your DWI charges are based on breath & blood tests, you may be able to challenge the test results with the help of a knowledgeable Charlotte criminal defense attorney.
Drunk driving poses a serious threat to everyone on the road and state and local law enforcement are understandably concerned to put an end to this behavior. However, the tests used to determine a DWI are not fully accurate in every case. Similar to field sobriety tests, breath & blood tests manage to spot a majority of offenders, but when the equipment used is faulty or improperly calibrated, test results can be skewed, resulting in a false positive. Operator error can also be a factor, as well as peculiarities to the physiology of the suspect, such as higher lung volume. Many people are falsely convicted of DWI based on erroneous test results.
