DWI Case: Yes, the Blood Test Can Be Challenged

Most DWI (driving while intoxicated) cases involve blood being drawn. Many people believe that the results of a blood analysis are accurate and indisputable. As any good DWI lawyer will tell you, that isn’t always the case.

It is generally considered that the blood sample being analyzed in the lab is in the same condition as the blood in the person’s vein at the time it is collected. This, however, is rarely the case. The law requires that a blood sample remain uncontaminated from collection to analysis to reporting. Lawyers know that the integrity of the sample can be adversely affected at any time during these processes.

The technicalities behind the possible contamination of a blood sample is lengthy and complicated. Nonetheless, you should understand that in the event you get pulled over and arrested for DWI, and are required to take a blood test, the result from the analysis isn’t always accurate and can be contested. Thus, you can fight the allegations being levelled at you.

If you or someone you know wants to challenge a DWI charge, contact an experienced and knowledgeable attorney immediately. He can inform you of your options for dealing with the charge and help you find the right way to beat it.
