About Blood & Breath Testing
Blood & breath test results play a large part in most OWI/DUI cases. Michigan's implied consent law states that a driver must submit to a blood or breath test if they are arrested for DUI or OWI. If a person refuses to submit to a blood or breath test after their arrest, they are at risk of having their driving privileges suspended and facing additional criminal penalties for a second or subsequent refusal. If you or someone you love has been arrested for drunk driving, chances are that a blood or breath test played some part in your case, whether the results incriminated you for OWI/DUI or if you refused to take the test entirely. At Freedman Law Group, we will address your blood or breath test (or lack thereof) in an effort to improve your situation following a DUI/OWI arrest.
If you did take a blood or breath test, your Michigan criminal defense lawyer will first question the validity of the test itself, and of its results. Our attorney knows that the results of blood & breath tests are not always accurate and that there are a great many factors which could lead to an inflated or inaccurate blood or breath test result. Both blood and breath tests are administered by people, and this fact alone sheds light on the fact that mistakes can and will occur during the testing process. Sobriety tests are improperly administered all the time, and if this occurred in your case your Michigan DUI attorney will take action to discover it and point it out so you can't be convicted of OWI/DUI.

Not only can the administrator of the test cause inaccuracies, but if the test subject has certain health conditions it may affect the outcome of the test, as can outside conditions involving the weather and problems with the testing equipment itself. No matter what the circumstances of your OWI/DUI blood or breath test were, your Michigan criminal defense attorney will do whatever necessary to detect inconsistencies with the test results in an effort to prevent you from being wrongly penalized for drunk driving.
