Breath & Blood Tests in Savannah
Challenging Your DUI & 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 the arrest. In addition to possibly avoiding 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.
The Schneider Law Firm is dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals who have been charged with DUI in Georgia. Whether you are from Georgia or another state, the quality of your representation has a direct impact on the resolution of your case. Our Savannah breath and blood test attorneys can represent you effectively.
Challenging Breath & Blood Tests in Court
In 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 or older. The legal limit for those under the age of 21 is 0.02% BAC.
Breath and blood tests are not foolproof. They can be inaccurate and are challenged in almost every DUI case.
Our attorneys can challenge the:
- Method of testing
- Timing of the test
- Calibration of the breathalyzer
- Chain of custody of the blood tests
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 DUI attorney can cast doubt on the results of breath and blood tests in a variety of ways, which can result in their inadmissibility. Having test results thrown out at trial can break down the prosecution’s case and bolster our defense.
