Breath and Blood Test Evidence
A breath test or blood test will play an important role in any driver's Florida DUI case. This chemical test will be the means in which law enforcement will attempt to prove that you were driving under the influence; that is, with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater. This is the primary way law enforcement and the prosecution will attempt to secure a conviction against you.
Fighting Chemical Test Evidence
It is impossible for a breath or blood test to be 100% accurate, and breath tests in particular are notorious for their many faults. Each person's metabolism, body temperature, weight, health, and other physical issues combine to create a unique profile that may be affected differently by alcohol and which may result in different outcomes on a breath test or blood test, no matter how slight or considerable.
An error in the manner in which a breath or blood test is administered or how a blood sample is handled may also impact the outcome of a test. An improperly calibrated or maintained breath test machine may actually be grounds to dismiss breath or blood test results altogether.
