Can I Fight a Breath Test?

Breath tests are one of the primary ways in which law enforcement can obtain probable cause to make an arrest for an alleged DWI (driving while intoxicated) and determine an individual's blood alcohol content (BAC) level. If you have been arrested for DWI based on a failed breathalyzer test, or you have blown at least 0.08% BAC level on a breath test administered following your arrest, you may be wondering if can fight your test results.

The answer is yes. These types of tests are not known for being highly accurate. Our lawyers regularly challenge breath test results by arguing that an improperly calibrated machine, faulty equipment, a lack of regular maintenance, inadequate officer training, incorrect use or any number of other factors caused the results to be invalid. When successfully challenged, evidence from a breath test can be found inadmissible in court and the case will likely be dismissed.

Arguing with the arresting officer about breath test results, admitting guilt of any kind or refusing to take a breath test in the first place will not help your defense.
