When facing DUI charges, it is important to understand the role of experts in your defense. These experts include specialists in blood testing, breath testing, as well as the expertise of your attorney. Our attorneys possess extensive knowledge, training, and experience in investigating both breath and blood tests, allowing them to identify potential mistakes and errors.
Breath testing, which relies on outdated respiratory science from the 1950s, can be challenged with the help of experts. While we consult with specialists in breath test cases, our attorneys themselves have a deep understanding of the flawed science behind these tests. This allows us to expose the inaccuracies and variations in breath test results, demonstrating their unreliability. Mistakes in the administration of the tests can also render them invalid or inadmissible.
In the case of blood testing, although the science is more advanced, errors can still occur. Our attorneys are well versed in the scientific principles and procedures involved in blood testing. By thoroughly examining the records associated with a blood test, we can uncover potential mistakes, improper conduct, or even instances where the test results belong to someone else. We have the expertise to challenge blood test results effectively, even in cases with high blood alcohol concentrations.
While calling upon external experts as witnesses is an option, our Texas DWI/DUI attorneys possess the knowledge and skills to challenge blood and breath test cases. We have successfully defended numerous blood test cases, achieving favorable outcomes even with results as high as 0.33. Our expertise enables us to provide a robust defense against DUI charges.
In a DWI case, a toxicologist plays a critical role. They are called as witnesses to support the admissibility of blood or breath test results in court. Their responsibility is to demonstrate that the tests were conducted using recognized scientific principles and proper procedures, resulting in legally admissible scores. The toxicologist’s testimony is crucial in establishing possible intoxication in a client.
However, during cross-examination, the toxicologist can be questioned about potential mistakes or inconsistencies in the blood or breath tests. By skillfully challenging their testimony, we can cast doubt on the reliability or admissibility of the test results. Additionally, the toxicologist can be questioned regarding the relationship between the test result and the time of driving.
For instance, if a breath or blood test is conducted sometime after the arrest, we can question the toxicologist about whether the test result accurately reflects the blood alcohol concentration at the time of driving. Through cross-examination, we can demonstrate that the alcohol concentration at the time of driving was well below the legal limit. Alternatively, we can explore scenarios where the test results are excessively high, raising doubts about their believability.
Overall, the toxicologist’s role involves assisting in the admissibility of the test results as evidence, interpreting the results, and testifying about the proper scientific procedures followed during the tests.
