Failed Breathalyzer Defense

Bring a skilled lawyer onto your case. Call Curcillo Law for assistance contesting your breathalyzer test results.

Common Breathalyzer Test Defenses

If your DWI or DUI arrest involved a breathalyzer, it is important to hire a criminal defense attorney with in-depth knowledge of Pennsylvania breath testing and field sobriety testing procedures. There are many ways to challenge breath tests, including:

  • Consulting with experts — In the Harrisburg area, law enforcement officers use the Intoxilyzer 5000 breathalyzer. We often consult breath test experts to challenge the use of these breath tests and the procedures used by the arresting officer.
  • Looking at average body weight — Your blood alcohol content (BAC) varies depending on your height, weight, and the number of drinks you have had. We will investigate every aspect of your case in an effort to show that your BAC was in the legal range.
  • Investigating other factors — Were there prescription drugs in your system at the time of your breathalyzer test? Did another factor contribute to your failed breath test, such as a medical condition or technical malfunctions? We will explore every avenue to help you fight these charges.

What happens if I refused the breathalyzer test?

It is often better to fail a breathalyzer than to refuse to take it. You could lose your license if you refuse a breath test. However, if you fail your test, you may be able to avoid both DUI charges and license suspension. If you refused the breath test, our attorneys can help you understand your rights and your legal options moving forward.

Our lead attorney has been practicing criminal law for more than 25 years. Whether this is your first DWI / DUI offense or your second, we advise you to call Curcillo Law immediately!
