Breath and Blood Tests
DUI Attorneys Serving Manatee County, Florida
Breath and blood tests are used to measure a driver’s blood alcohol or breath alcohol concentration following an arrest for suspected DUI (driving under the influence). Florida law regarding these tests is particularly harsh. If you refuse to submit to this testing, you will face administrative license suspension by the Florida DHSMV. In DUI cases involving serious bodily injury or death, law enforcement and authorized medical personnel may conduct a forceful withdrawal of blood even if you refused to give a sample. A blood sample may be taken if you are unconscious and therefore unable to refuse or consent.

A criminal defense attorney at our firm can work to fight your test results.
