Eriksen, we have 15 years of experience providing clear answers to those and many other questions, while guiding you through the legal system and protecting your freedom.
Testing Your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)
There are two primary ways that Pennsylvania attempts to prosecute you for drunk driving: breath and blood tests. These each can be performed incorrectly or in violation of your rights. We keep up-to-date on the most recent information, so we know how to take action when your rights have been violated.
- Breathalyzer tests: In Pennsylvania, the most common breath testing machine is the Intoxilyzer. It must be properly calibrated, maintained and operated by someone who was certified to use it. We always look to see how accurate your breath sample was and whether or not the Breathalyzer test was administered incorrectly.
- Blood tests: Blood test results are used more and more in Bucks County to prosecute people for DUI/DWI. Blood tests must be conducted by approved technicians at an approved facility. Errors may have contaminated the sample. We will explore all of your options.
Defense against DUI charges is something we take very seriously here at The Law Office of Niels C. Eriksen. We know that a conviction can greatly disrupt your life. We will do everything we can to avoid harsh consequences in your cases
