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. To improve your chances of being able to fight
