Breath and Blood Tests in Jacksonville

In Florida, you will receive a DUI if your breath or blood test proves an alcohol content of 0.08 percent or above. If proven guilty, serious DUI penalties are guaranteed. Unfortunately, mistakes with blood and breath tests and other types of field sobriety tests can put innocent drivers at risk to unjust penalties. If you have been unfairly charged with a DUI, you need to get in touch with a DUI lawyer as soon as possible!

Challenging the Breath & Blood Tests

You are required to take a breath test if told to do so by an officer, or you will lose driving privileges for a year – but what if the test you were commanded to take falsely accuses you of a DUI? Breathalyzers can often be inaccurate. Most breath test machines use infrared spectroscopy to test the amount of methyl groups in your breath. These methyl groups are not only found in alcohol. They are a significant component in acetone: a common flammable liquid in gasoline, paint thinner, glue, and nail polish remover. If any of these substances are inhaled prior to a breath test, it can cause a test to read positive. Our own bodies produce a form of acetone as well as over 100 other methyl groups, which can also cause incorrect results.

In the state of Florida, blood test administration is restricted to registered nurses and doctors or other "qualified persons." Refusal to submit to a blood test results in one year of license suspension. Still, blood tests can be handled in ways that can cause your blood alcohol content to read positive when you are sober. Lack of sterilization, preservative or refrigeration issues, coagulation, and fermentation problems may cause an innocent person to be accused of drunk driving. As well, there is a possibility that your blood vial may have been mislabeled or switched, causing you to suffer the consequences for someone else's crime.
