The accuracy of breathalyzer tests is often taken for granted, but several factors can cause these devices to give false readings. From technical malfunctions to user error, the trustworthiness of the test results can be compromised. We are vigilant about investigating these factors in your case to build a staunch defense.

Did you know that something as simple as a low battery can skew breathalyzer results? Or that certain medical conditions and diets could falsely elevate your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reading? Our attorneys are trained to recognize these and many other issues that most people, including law enforcement, might overlook.

State regulations dictate strict guidelines for the maintenance and calibration of breathalyzer devices. These rules are in place to ensure accuracy, but they are not always followed to the letter. Our eagle-eyed legal professionals know how to scrutinize maintenance logs and calibration records to spot any neglect.

Even a device that is slightly out of calibration could result in a reading that's higher than the truth. We probe into when and how the breathalyzer was last checked for accuracy. It's meticulous work, but it's crucial for safeguarding your interests and ensuring a fair outcome.

Believe it or not, the environment around you during the breathalyzer test can impact the results. Breathalyzers could interpret the presence of certain chemicals or fumes from the surroundings as alcohol. These external factors can falsely inflate BAC levels leading to wrongful accusations.

In your defense, our team looks into all environmental elements present at the time of your test. Being in the vicinity of paint thinners, gasoline, or even using hand sanitizer could cause the breathalyzer device to misread. We're dedicated to uncovering the truth.

The validity of a breathalyzer test largely hinges on the officer administering the test correctly. Proper training is essential, and protocols must be strictly followed. At Fowler Kathryn Law Office, we cross-examine these procedures to ensure that your test was conducted properly.

From the 15-minute observation period to making sure you didn't eat, drink, or smoke before the test, there are numerous guidelines that officers should adhere to. Our savvy attorneys leave no stone unturned to guarantee procedural correctness.

Your legal rights are paramount, especially when facing a DUI charge based on potentially flawed breathalyzer test results. Knowledge is power, and we strive to equip you with the understanding you need to navigate the legal system effectively.

We ensure you're aware of your rights at every step, and we guide you through the options available. Defending against a DUI charge can feel overwhelming, but with our help, you'll have the confidence and legal acumen to stand firm. Call us at (512) 218-1536 and let's safeguard your rights together.

The assumptions surrounding breathalyzer tests can often cloud judgment and lead to convictions based on faulty evidence. At Fowler Kathryn Law Office, we've seen how these assumptions can turn lives upside down. Our legal experts specialize in identifying and illuminating these common pitfalls to provide a robust defense for our clients.

There's a myriad of variables that can skew breathalyzer results, and our team is adept at uncovering them. Whether it's the presence of residual alcohol in the mouth from recent dental work or the effect of certain medications, we know what questions to ask and what evidence to pursue. Everyone's situation is unique, and we treat it as such.

One might not consider how recent drinking or other activities could linger and mislead a breathalyzer test. But in reality, mouth alcohol-that is, alcohol from sources other than your bloodstream-can dramatically inflate your BAC reading.

Our lawyers investigate everything, from when you last ate or drank to recent dental work that might have trapped alcohol in your mouth. These factors can be game-changers in your defense.

Less known to many, certain medical conditions like acid reflux or diets like the ketogenic diet can actually cause false positives in breathalyzer tests. This happens due to the creation of acetone in the body, which breathalyzers may falsely detect as alcohol.

This technicality isn't just medical jargon-it's a feasible defense strategy. Our lawyers are familiar with the science behind these conditions and diets, and we harness this knowledge to reinforce your case.

Even the most sophisticated machines are not immune to error. Breathalyzers are complex instruments that come with a margin of error. This variability must be taken into account when interpreting results.

We pour over the specifications and error margins of the specific breathalyzer model used in your case. Small percentages might seem trivial, but they can be the difference between a conviction and an acquittal.

By thoroughly examining the testing process for missteps and oversight, our legal team can identify procedural errors that could invalidate the breathalyzer results being held against you.

Skip a step, and the whole test could be thrown into question. We're particularly sharp-eyed when reviewing your DUI stop and test to make certain that everything was done by the book. Because your rights matter, and so does the truth of your BAC level.

It's not just about pointing out errors in breathalyzer tests. It's about constructing an effective defense that upholds your rights and combats inaccurate evidence.
