When you are arrested for drunk driving, your defense plan has to start right away. If you are actually intoxicated, it can be difficult to come up with a plan right then. Still, the actions that you take can have a profound impact on your defense options down the road. One of the important things you have to do is to make notes about some points relating to the arrest.
If you took a breath test when you were arrested, there are some circumstances around that test that you should make note of. Try to remember how the test was administered, what you had to eat prior to the test, if you had vomited prior to taking the test and any medical conditions you had at the time of the test. All of these factors can impact the results of the breath test.
Interestingly, there is a chance that we could call the accuracy of the breath test into question. Oftentimes, the results of breath tests are found to be inaccurate. We can work to determine if this is a possible defense point that we can use to fight against your DUI charge.
It is important that you look into all possible options for your DUI defense. The more questions you can raise, the better your case might be. The last thing that you need is to miss something that could make a huge difference in your defense. Even if you aren’t able to get out of the DUI charge, your defense might still be able to help minimize the penalties that you do face.
