Understanding DUI Blood Tests

In Maryland, blood tests are a critical component of the evidence used in DUI cases, particularly when drugs are suspected or the suspect refuses a breathalyzer test. These tests are regarded as more accurate than other chemical tests but are also more invasive. At Ryan Law LLC, we ensure our clients fully understand their rights and the implications of blood tests in DUI proceedings. Our experienced DUI defense attorneys in Aberdeen, Bel Air, and Havre de Grace are skilled in analyzing the procedures and results associated with these tests to build a solid defense.

Blood tests require precise handling and must be administered under strict conditions to ensure their reliability. Any deviation from these standards can affect the validity of the test results. Our team meticulously reviews the circumstances of your blood test, from the timing of the test to the qualifications of the personnel involved, to identify potential flaws and inaccuracies in the prosecution’s case.

Can You Refuse a Blood Test in Maryland?

Maryland’s implied consent law means that by driving on Maryland roads, you’ve implicitly agreed to submit to chemical testing if suspected of DUI. Refusal to submit to a blood test can lead to immediate administrative penalties, including license suspension and fines, regardless of whether you were eventually found guilty of DUI. However, officers must still follow legal procedures to administer a blood test, including obtaining a warrant if you do not consent, unless exigent circumstances exist.

Contesting Blood Test Results in DUI Cases

The reliability of DUI blood tests can be compromised by several factors, from the method of collection to the way the sample is stored and analyzed. Ryan Law LLC challenges blood test evidence on grounds such as improper handling, contamination, or delays in testing, which can degrade samples and affect results. We also scrutinize the chain of custody and qualifications of the personnel who draw and handle the blood samples.

  • Highlighting errors in how blood samples were stored or transported.
  • Identifying any breaks in the chain of custody that could question the sample’s integrity.
  • Pointing out flaws in the analytical process used to determine blood alcohol or drug levels.

How We Defend Against DUI Blood Test Evidence

At Ryan Law LLC, our defense strategies for challenging DUI blood tests are comprehensive. We assess every aspect of the blood testing process and exploit any legal or procedural shortcomings to your advantage. This includes filing motions to suppress evidence when testing procedures violate constitutional rights or when there is a failure to properly execute a valid warrant.

Furthermore, we often collaborate with forensic experts to provide an independent analysis of the blood samples. Such expert testimony can be crucial in disputing the state’s evidence and demonstrating that the blood test results are unreliable or inaccurate due to specific technical faults or procedural errors.
