Challenging Breathalyzer Results

failed the test? do not give up

If you took a Breathalyzer test and failed, you may feel as if you have already been convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI). However, it is important to understand that you can challenge the test results. Your blood alcohol content (BAC) is one of the most critical factors in the state's case against you. Do not waste your opportunity to challenge it.

contesting the results

To present an effective defense, the results and conditions of breath tests, blood tests and field sobriety tests must be examined carefully. When tests are administered or evaluated improperly, we can argue for a reduction or dismissal of the charges against you.

In Texas, the Intoxilyzer 5000 is the type of Breathalyzer used by law enforcement. If you took the test and it registered a BAC of .08 percent or higher, you were charged with DWI. However, there are a number of reasons that your test results may be challenged such as:

  • The machine may be improperly calibrated or operated by an unqualified person
  • The evidence may have been mishandled
  • There is a medical reason that affected the results
  • You take prescription medications that affected the results
  • You vomited or hiccuped during the test
  • The officer did not correctly observe you for the required amount of time
