Factors Influencing Blood Alcohol Content

DWI arrests are based primarily on the estimated or calculated blood alcohol content of an individual who was behind the wheel of an automobile. A police officer might conduct several different tests in order to determine the blood alcohol content of the driver. However, these tests are all subject to potential flaws. A case against a motorist might hinge largely on the BAC of the accused as represented by the results of a urinalysis, blood test, or breathalyzer.

If you or someone you love has been charged with driving while intoxicated, enlisting the support of a skilled and experienced DWI attorney is critically important. Contact the Raleigh DWI defense lawyers at the Law Office of Jim Black at 919-600-4609 to begin working to build a strong defense.

Factors that Affect an Individual’s BAC

A person’s BAC might be determined by several different types of tests. Different people respond differently to alcohol consumption and their blood alcohol content will be similarly varied. Accordingly, it is important to understand what factors might bear on your own BAC. Some of the factors that can have an effect on one’s blood alcohol content include:

  • Body weight
  • Metabolism rates
  • Percentage of body fat
  • Sex of the individual
  • Height of the accused person

DWI convictions can lead to extremely negative consequences, making it essential that all charges that are brought against you are met by a vigorous and insightful legal defense.
