Philadelphia Chemical Test Defense Lawyer
Seasoned DUI Attorney On Your Side
When arrested for DUI, you are required to take a chemical test to determine
what your blood alcohol level (BAC) is. While the results for such tests
are often used as primary evidence in securing a conviction of DUI, they
can often present an inaccurate picture of your intoxication levels at
the time of driving.
With Parkinson, Tarpey & Lloyd, you can fight the foundation of your
charges by challenging the evidence presented in a DUI case. Our
Philadelphia DUI attorneys have more than 40 years of combined experience, including time as former
district attorneys, and can help you build a formidable case against the
Challenging Chemical Test Evidence
Because breath, blood, and chemical tests are merely chemical indicators
of the presence of alcohol, they are often far from sufficient for upholding
your allegations. In addition to the fact that the actual BAC for intoxication
varies from person to person, each test may be inaccurate depending on
the circumstances in which it was administered. That is why you need a
Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer to assist with contesting these results.
Our firm can help you fight your charges by challenging these chemical tests:
Breath test: If you have any alcohol in your mouth at the time of a test, the results
may be higher than accurate. Additional problems with a breath test may
stem from malfunctioning or poorly calibrated testing equipment.
Blood test: Because alcohol takes time to absorb into your blood stream, you may be
arrested while driving under the legal limit but test with a substantially
higher BAC. Additionally, delays in sampling or contaminated tests may
skew results unfavorably.
Urine test: As with other tests, data can be influenced by inadequate testing methods
or equipment. Data for this test may not reflect actual BAC while driving,
and certain foods and medication may lead to inflated results.
It is imperative that you retain a legal team with the acuity needed to
combat your BAC test results. At Parkinson, Tarpey & Lloyd, we have
successfully handled numerous cases on the state and federal levels. With
experience in defense as well as prosecution, we approach every case with
a balanced understanding of the charges are clients are facing, and help
them stand against the toughest prosecution.
