Breath & Blood Tests

Are Blood Tests Always Accurate?

Despite their scientific nature, breath and blood tests do not necessarily provide conclusive evidence regarding your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Several factors may affect the accuracy of the results obtained in your case and an experienced Mesa DUI lawyer from the Law Offices of Trent R. Buckallew, PC has the experience and knowledge regarding both blood and breath results. After a thorough investigation of your case, the attorney will prepare the appropriate legal arguments based on his findings, to ensure that an aggressive defense is advanced in your case. A breath test may be administered incorrectly, the device may be calibrated incorrectly or equipment errors may result in an erroneous reading. A blood test may not be administered in a medically approved manner and a mishandled sample may be compromised and not valid for testing. Testing can be done incorrectly, also resulting in false results. It is critical to obtain legal counsel who is adept at understanding the science behind the evidence in DUI cases.
