Drunk Driver or Asthmatic?

If you have been charged with drunk driving in the Denver area, it is important that you consult with a DUI lawyer as soon as possible. Your DUI lawyer will review your case to determine whether or not there were any extenuating circumstances surrounding your arrest that need to be taken into consideration. Your Denver DUI lawyer will also want to look into any “tests” that were used to confirm that you were intoxicated to verify accuracy and credibility. Even if a police officer told you that you “failed” your breath test or a field sobriety test, make sure to speak with a DUI lawyer, because an arrest is not a conviction, and your DUI lawyer may be able to get the charges against you dismissed.

There are multiple reasons why a breathalyzer might yield incorrect results. For example, if you are asthmatic and use an inhaler, it is entirely possible to obtain an elevated reading after blowing into a breathalyzer if you have recently used your inhaler. That is why your Denver DUI lawyer will want to know of any medical conditions that may have affected your test, as well as whether or not you had recently used any mouthwash that contained alcohol or any menthol chewing tobacco, which could also have resulted in a false result.

Regardless of what the officer told you, if you have been charged with drunk driving, consult with a Denver DUI lawyer from the Law Offices of D.R. Jones. Your lawyer will thoroughly investigate your case and provide you with the best defense possible.
