What Are My DUI Defense Options?
Under Florida Law, it is illegal to drive when your BAC, or blood alcohol
content, exceeds 0.08%. Your BAC levels are determined using various chemical
tests, like a breathalyzer or blood test. Even if you are on the cusp
of reaching a 0.08% BAC level, you may still receive a DUI because of
your impaired driving. An officer will perform a field sobriety test to
determine if the amount of alcohol you have consumed affects your motor skills.
Possible DUI Defense Strategies:
Probable cause - Did the arresting officer have a valid reason or suspicion to pull you over?
Breathalyzer accuracy - Breathalyzers are known to produce inaccurate results, are prone to
human error, and can be influenced by many environmental factors.
Miranda rights were read to you - The arresting officer is required to read your Miranda rights the moment
you are arrested
Personal medical issue - Many health conditions can affect breathalyzer results, including hypoglycemia,
diabetes, or people who are on a high-protein diet.
Our team can analyze every aspect of your case, including the arrest, the
blood/chemical test results, and whether proper police procedures were
followed. We pay attention to the little details that can make a significant
difference in the outcome of your case.
