How to challenge a failed sobriety test
If you have been arrested for drunk driving, it is likely because of a failed sobriety test, probably administered during the course of a traffic stop. A drunk driving conviction can have a long-term impact on your life, so it is important to approach these types of charges seriously by enlisting the help of a drunk driving attorney. It is possible that there were issues with your arrest, and you may be able to challenge the failed sobriety test.
If convicted of drunk driving, you could face jail time, steep fines and loss of your driving privileges. These potential consequences are intimidating, but it is possible to launch a defense that will confront these charges and pursue lesser fines and penalties. Our experienced Tennessee team knows how to do this. We will evaluate your entire case and determine the best approach, including challenging your failed sobriety test.
It is possible that there were issues with the initial traffic stop. A Tennessee police officer must have a valid reason for pulling a driver over and a legitimate reason for requesting a sobriety test. It is possible that there were issues with the equipment used during testing, or the police officer may not have been properly trained. If your rights were violated in any way, this may also be factored into a drunk driving defense plan.
We will investigate your entire case, beginning from the initial traffic stop. If there are problems with the case against you, we will find them. Our job is to fight for you during the entire legal process. If you believes that there were issues with your failed sobriety test or you would like to learn more about your options for a drunk driving defense, contact us today.
