Breath & Blood Tests in Savannah

Challenging Your DUI and the Evidence Against You

If you or someone you know has been charged with DUI, the most important thing you can do is to call a competent Savannah DUI attorney immediately. All DUI arrests are subject to an automatic license suspension and must be challenged within 10 business days of arrest. In addition to possibly being able to avoid the license suspension, valuable evidence can be gathered at the license suspension hearing which may otherwise be lost. It is crucial to consult with an attorney who is familiar with the DUI enforcement laws and focused on representing those accused of DUI as soon as possible.

Whether or not you are from Georgia or another state, it is critical to the outcome of your case to obtain the best possible representation you can.

Breath and Blood Tests Challenged in Court

In the state of Georgia, as in most states, one of the main pieces of evidence in a DUI case are the results of forensic breath and blood tests. The legal limit in Georgia for driving a vehicle with alcohol in your system is a 0.08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) if you are 21 years of age or over. The legal limit for those under the age of 21 is 0.02% BAC. Commercial drivers 21 years of age and over have a legal limit of 0.04%. Breath and blood tests are not foolproof. They can be inaccurate and are challenged in almost every DUI case.

The method of testing, when a driver is tested, the calibration of the breathalyzer, and the chain of custody of the blood tests are often challenged for their legality. Many times, when properly challenged, the results of breath or blood tests can be inadmissible at trial due to irregularities or improper administration of the tests. A qualified, experienced DUI attorney can cast doubt on the results of breath and blood tests in a variety of ways, which can result in their inadmissibility. When the results of breath and blood tests are thrown out and not presentable at trial, the prosecution's case falls apart and our clients can gain a dismissal of the case.
