Challenge Fort Worth DWI Breathalyzer Results
Attacking Breath Test Evidence of DWI Guilt in Texas
Breathalyzers are not flawless, and if improperly handled by law enforcement the evidence collected can be flawed and challenged in court. There is also substantial scientific debate over how accurate a breathalyzer test is, even under ideal conditions.
When your livelihood, your job, your driver’s license and even your freedom is at stake, you should have a criminal defense lawyer on your side who can challenge breath tests and other questionable evidence in court. At the Bedford law office of David E. Cook, our DWI lawyer has been representing clients in Fort Worth and throughout Tarrant County for 15 years. We can help you protect your rights in and out of the courtroom.
Working to Build a Skilled Defense
In DWI cases, the breathalyzer test is often a key element of the prosecution’s case. Some people mistakenly believe that the results of that test are the end of the story and that a defense lawyer cannot do much to help. The reality is that as a skilled trial lawyer, our founding attorney has successfully challenged breathalyzer results by arguing points such as:
- The police improperly administered the test
- A client’s blood alcohol level was different at the time the accused was driving
- The breath test machine was in error or not calibrated correctly
- The suspected DWI offender was not properly monitored up to administering the test
In Texas the prosecution has to prove first and above all else that the accused was intoxicated or his or her driving ability was impaired when driving. A breathalyzer test result can be a part of this case, but at best, it only really indicates that a person was intoxicated at the time they took the test. As an experienced lawyer with proven results challenging these kinds of cases, our law firm knows how to challenge the prosecution and cross-examine police.
