Why You Shouldn't Refuse a Chemical Test

You are mandated to submit to a chemical test in Florida due to implied consent laws, which you automatically agree to by driving on a public road. Refusal will result in an automatic suspension of your driver's license. Your first refusal will result in a year-long license suspension, while any subsequent offenses carry a suspension of 18 months. Even if results show that you are driving with a blood alcohol over the legal limit of 0.08%, our criminal defense lawyers can fight these results in court. A strong legal defense can result in having your case thrown out!

Are Breath & Blood Test Really Accurate?

While an officer or prosecutor may try to convince the judge and jury chemical test evidence is definitive proof of intoxication, our legal team knows that is far from the truth. Breath and blood tests are not scientifically reliable. Not only can they be messed up due to improper machine maintenance, but something as small as mouthwash can throw off the results! Breath tests are especially vulnerable to inaccurate readings.

Test results can often be messed up by thing likes:

  • Incorrect administration or calibration
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Recent belching
  • Dentures or dental issues

There are also many issues that can cause a blood test to produce inaccurate results.

As such, the results of your test can be challenged.
