Under the Tennessee implied consent law, an officer may request that you submit to a chemical test of your blood, breath or urine to determine your blood alcohol content. Of these three, the blood test is generally considered to be the most accurate, and thus the most difficult to dispute. However, a knowledgeable attorney will know all the avenues to consider when defending you against the results of a DUI blood test.
Tennessee law is very specific about the manner in which a blood sample is drawn, who may draw it, and how it must be stored and shipped to the lab. The blood sample also must follow a strict chain of custody protocol; otherwise, the results could be null and void.
A seasoned attorney will know what to look for when reviewing the results of the blood test, including whether the results were rounded up. If your BAC was not 0.08 or higher, you may not be charged with DUI per se.
