Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)
Dallas DWI Attorneys Serving Fort Worth, Denton, Austin, McKinney, Collin County & All of Northern Texas
Alcohol concentration is something that you may hear frequently associated with your DWI case. Also referred to as BrAC or BAC, your alcohol concentration is a measure of the amount of alcohol in your system. This may be tested through the administration of a breath test or blood test. Though many perceive blood testing to be more accurate than breath testing, both procedures have their faults and may be subject to false high readings based off any of a number of errors or physical conditions.
Dallas DWI lawyer, Deandra M. Grant, of Hamilton Grant PC is very familiar with alcohol concentration tests and how to challenge these tests in court and at ALR hearings. Attorney Grant has herself undergone extensive training in how to operate and maintain the Intoxilyzer 5000, the breath testing machine used in Texas. She has completed coursework in forensic blood and urine testing and obtained a certificate in Forensic Chromatography from the American Chemical Society and Axion Labs in Chicago, Ill. All of the knowledge and information that she has acquired in this field enables Attorney Grant to effectively evaluate the method of breath or blood testing that you underwent and challenge the results.
BAC Testing & DWI in Texas
If your BrAC or BAC is tested and found to be at .08% or greater, you may be charged with DWI. In Texas, you may also face DWI charges if your BrAC or BAC is below the legal limit, but the Officer believes your physical and/or mental abilities are not normal due to alcohol consumption or drug use.
Don't accept substandard representation if you are facing DWI charges in Dallas or the surrounding areas. At Hamilton Grant PC, we are here to provide you with the dedicated and aggressive representation that you need in order to avoid the many penalties associated with a DWI charge. Just because you took a breath test or blood test and showed a BrAC or BAC reading above the legal limit, this does not mean that the result is accurate or that you will be convicted.
