Blood testing is considered to be more accurate than breath tests. However, labs are operated by people and people make mistakes. Most states have regulations in place stating how these tests should be done with guidelines on how samples are transported, preserved, and processed.
Some states have strict laws on who, how and where the DUI blood tests are done. Other states, such as Mississippi, have laws that are slightly more vague for the required procedures with blood testing. This can cause difficulty in accumulating legal challenges from the defendant. A few issues that could occur with blood samples could include poor preservation, machine errors, loss of documentation for chain of custody of samples, or even simple mix ups with vials.
Knowledgeable DUI-DWI lawyers know how to fight blood tests and all obstacles involved. The complexity of tracking the life-cycle of samples can be tricky, but missing imperative steps could result in case acquittal due to the blood test no longer being admissible evidence.
