DUI Blood Test Attorney Miami, FL
Florida Blood Alcohol Content - Measuring BAC
If a person is stopped by law enforcement in Florida for suspected driving under the influence (DUI), it is likely that law enforcement will ask the person to consent to some form of blood alcohol testing, usually a breath test. Blood alcohol testing is used by law enforcement to determine the amount of alcohol that is in a person’s blood stream. The amount of alcohol in a person’s blood stream is given in a percentage, and is referred to as the person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC). In the state of Florida, it is illegal for a person to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.08% or higher. If a person is found to be operating a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.08% or higher, he/she will most likely face immediate arrest and criminal charges for DUI, or DWI.
It is very important for people to know that blood alcohol testing will always play a large role in the outcome of a person’s criminal case. This is because law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges believe these chemical tests do not leave a large margin for error. However, there are many cases in which field sobriety tests such as blood, breath, and urine test results have been found to be inaccurate. Things such as faulty testing devices and inappropriate administration can lead to false blood alcohol test results, and change the outcome of any person’s case. In order for a person to review the accuracy and conditions of his/her blood alcohol test, it is always a good idea for him/her to obtain the services of a skilled attorney that is willing to provide the right investigative resources.
