What is blood alcohol content?

Blood alcohol content, or BAC, is defined as the percentage of alcohol in a person's blood. By example, if a person has a BAC of .10%, this means that one tenth of a percent of their blood is composed of alcohol. As a person's blood alcohol content rises, their behavior and impairment changes from their regular behavior to uncontrollable side effects that alcohol is known to cause including the loss of concentration, depth perception, reasoning and reaction time, motor impairment, slurred speech, unconsciousness and even death. As such, it is never advised to attempt to operate a vehicle while under the influence of any amount of alcohol or drugs.

However, if you have recently been arrested for DUI with a BAC below or above the legal limit, it is important for you to understand how to handle the situation. First and foremost, we strongly advise you to speak with a Santa Monica DUI defense attorney. With a lawyer on your case, you may be able to find that the officer who arrested you did so wrongfully. Here at Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we understand that every case has a plausible defense and explanation. Whether the breathalyzer used to give you a field sobriety test was improperly calibrated or simply inaccurate, as they are sometimes, our firm will leave no stone unturned in our investigation of your case.
