Defenses To Your DWI Blood Test

Police may have asked you to take a breath test or forced you to submit a blood sample. Unfortunately, a court order or search warrant may not be needed in special instances. However, you have constitutional rights. Your results could be suppressed if there was:

  • No reasonable suspicion to stop you in the first place
  • Improprieties in the establishment or management of any DWI roadblock or checkpoint
  • Unacceptable delay in analysis of your blood
  • Improper procedures followed in requesting or compelling the blood sample
  • Improper authorization by a neutral and detached judicial official
