We recently discussed some of the specific points that can come into the picture when you are arrested for drunk driving. Each of the points of your case is one that could potentially be a focus of your defense. When we review your case to determine what defense strategies to consider, we look into all of these points.
The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test that is involved in your case is an important point. There are instances in which we can call these results into question. You have to think carefully about the circumstances of the testing so that we can determine if this is a consideration.
The manner in which the sample was taken matters, so you have to be ready to give us a step-by-step rundown of what happened. We need to know if you ate or drank anything prior to the test or if you have vomited. You should tell us about any documented medical conditions that you have that might impact the outcome. These might include brain injuries, ear infections, vertigo, conditions that affect muscle movement and a host of others.
The time between the traffic stop or accident and when the sample was taken matters because of the way alcohol metabolizes in the body. This is another possible defense strategy that we might be able to utilize.
We understand that this is something difficult for you to face. Thinking about the possible penalties that you are up against might be frightening. In these cases, we need to work swiftly but we also need to take things one step at a time.
