Challenge Fort Worth DWI Blood Test Results
DWI Defense in Cases Involving Blood Draws in Tarrant County
Texas has an implied consent law as well as mandatory blood draws in certain cases of suspected DWI. This means that people often find themselves facing evidence acquired through a blood draw, even if they did not have the option to take a breathalyzer test.
At the David E. Cook law office in Fort Worth, Texas, our veteran attorney takes on complex DWI and drunk driving cases. We have 15 years of criminal defense experience to draw on, and we can work to make sure that your rights are protected and that you have a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney working to resolve your case.
Was Your Blood Taken During a DWI Stop?
Scientifically speaking, blood sampling is superior to both breathalyzers and field sobriety tests in accurately determining what volume of alcohol or drugs are in an individual’s blood stream. This fact doesn’t mean that these cases can’t be fought. Proving that an individual is guilty of intoxicated or impaired driving or of an injury accident still requires much more than blood evidence.
As your attorney, we may be able to challenge the prosecution on many points, including:
- Was blood drawn correctly?
- Was there any possibility of contamination?
- Did law enforcement have the right to draw blood?
- Was there sufficient evidence for the initial stop?
- Can prosecutors prove impairment while driving?
Felony offenses, such as multiple DWIs and accidents involving injury where there is suspected drunk driving, can lead to mandatory blood draws. This means that even if you wish to refuse providing a blood sample, police can force you to give blood. We can explore defenses that seek to prove that law enforcement went beyond their rights to demand a blood draw.
Even if you suspect you are guilty of the DWI, it is important to have an advocate on your side that can minimize long term penalties that convictions carry and protect your rights in the criminal process.
