Nevada DUI Blood Tests

Blood Alcohol Tests in Las Vegas & Reno

If you are suspected of drunk driving, the police officer will seek to measure your blood alcohol content. This is usually performed after the officer administers field sobriety tests or breath tests. Many clients ask whether they can refuse to take a blood test. Because they have already given implied consent for testing by obtaining a driver's license, refusal to take a blood test usually results in additional penalties beyond those imposed for a DUI conviction.

Issues in Blood Tests

When mounting a legal challenge to the results of a BAC test, we review issues such:

  • Medical conditions or medications that interfere with alcohol absorption
  • Proper storage and handling of blood after it was drawn
  • Chain of custody documentation
  • Observation of time limits
  • Qualifications of the personnel who drew the blood

We are frequently able to obtain reduced charges or dismissals of charges after analyzing these issues.
