Blood tests are considered more accurate than field and breath testing. However, the process is not perfect. Specific procedures must be followed in the drawing of blood and the custody of the sample. Laboratory errors, improper procedures or contaminated samples could result in a challenge to the findings.

If your blood alcohol content (BAC) registers 0.08 percent or greater, you could be charged with suspicion of drunk driving. While blood tests may be the most reliable way of testing BAC, problems can arise in the equipment or procedures.
Proactive measures must be taken in securing legal counsel. From the moment you are arrested, you need an attorney at your side to challenge the blood test. The stakes are high with DWI convictions carrying severe penalties beyond incarceration and fines. You could lose your license, have your vehicle impounded or pay hefty insurance premiums.
