Did you realize that blood tests to determine your Blood Alcohol Content may not be accurate?

     The admissibility of blood test results in a New Jersey DWI case depends in part on the procedures used in the collection of the sample.  Sometimes, police blood testing fails to follow the prescribed rules of testing, analysis, and preservation of the sample.  Medical centers that take these samples sometimes fail to follow proper protocol as well.  Even if they claim that the preparation swab is non-alcoholic, there can be some trace of alcohol in the swab which can subject samples to a possible Motion to Suppress Evidence, which could keep the BAC result out of the case.  Finally, hospital tests have been shown to overestimate blood results.  Make sure that you inform  your attorney as to the procedure for the blood draw in your case.

     Contact the Law Office of Christopher J. Basner, P.C., today, at  Ask for proof of DWI cases that were dismissed.  We will e-mail you actual Court Orders dismissing cases.  Of course, confidential client information will be redacted.
