Every Driving Under the Influence (DUI) case is unique and has several issues that need to be considered. Chugh,LLP attorney’s will consider factors such as time of drinking, amount of alcohol consumed and time of driving. These are important when you consider that one can drink alcohol, but not be under the influence with a 0.08 blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of driving.
A person’s health condition will also play an important factor. Medical conditions can affect the reading of a “breath test,” “PAS” or “EPAS” test, which the police use in determining whether someone is under the influence of an alcoholic beverage.
Chugh,LLP attorney’s will also examine problems inherent in the field sobriety tests (FSTs) administered by police such as the finger-to-nose test, reciting the alphabet neither of which are part of the so-called “Standardized Field Sobriety Tests” but are used by law enforcement nonetheless. Chugh,LLP attorney’s may also consult an expert to assist in a jury trial, who may testify as to matters such as fermentation of blood samples, margin of error in breath or blood samples, problems in how an officer administered field sobriety tests as well as problems inherent in the field sobriety test, among other things.
