Raleigh Breathalyzer Test Attorney

A breathalyzer is a device used to estimate the blood alcohol content (BAC) of an individual based on a breath sample. During a pull over, if a law enforcement officer believes the driver of the vehicle may be under the influence of alcohol, he or she may perform this test. A driver who registers a BAC level at or above 0.08% can be charged with driving while intoxicated.

If you or someone you love has been accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, you need the assistance of an aggressive and knowledgeable legal professional. Contact a Raleigh breathalyzer test attorney from The Law Office of Jim Black at 919-600-4609 to discuss your case with a lawyer today.

Limitations of Breathalyzer Tests

Breathalyzers are one of the most common sources of DWI arrests, yet they are not always accurate. Many times there are errors in the test results or the BAC estimate is skewed unfairly. Breathalyzer devices may give false readings based on outside temperature, breathing patterns, cell volume of blood, and many other factors. An experienced legal professional may be able to prove that this method of determining BAC was inaccurate and have the charges decreased or dismissed altogether.

There are strict legal conditions that a law enforcement officer must adhere to when giving a breathalyzer test. Without recent calibration of the device, information on right to refuse, or proper certification of the administrator, the reading attained from the breathalyzer test may be misleading.
