Blood Test

Santa Monica DUI Lawyer

The tests you agree to submit to upon request when applying for a driver's license include blood tests. If you have a medical condition that makes a blood test dangerous, a urine test can used instead. (A urine test will otherwise only be used if the officer suspects you are using drugs, or if neither a breath test nor blood test is available.) If you refuse to take a blood test, your license will be suspended for one year, or revoked for up to four years for repeat incidents.

In any DUI case, it is important to contact a Santa Monica DUI attorney immediately. An experienced and competent lawyer will want to review which tests were administered. At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we are very familiar with the details of such matters. We may be able to uncover information which makes a dramatic difference to the outcome of your case through the DMV as well as the courts.

There are several errors that can be made with blood tests. It is not entirely uncommon for blood to be drawn in a manner which is not medically approved, nor consistent with the law. Additionally, independent laboratories often find government crime laboratories lacking in their procedures. Violation of specific medical techniques in handling blood samples can mean the results offered as evidence may be invalid.

If such points as the above are not addressed, you are laid open to a severe injustice. We will treat your case with the attention and thoroughness it deserves. Your rights and liberty are important to us. We pride ourselves on providing extremely competent and accessible legal help and will do all we can to best serve you.
