Many factors can affect the results of DUI testing, and these can involve several scientific disciplines. Aspects such as your physiology, chemistry, physics, and a variety of other factors can adversely affect the accuracy of the tests conducted. Certain medical conditions also have a strong bearing on the effectiveness of various tests. Effective medical defenses often result in DUI charges being tossed out.
Here is a partial list of medical conditions that can help your defense:
- Gastric Reflux
- Dentistry – Dentures or bridge work, gum disease
- Diseases – Heart or lung disease, inner ear problems, diabetes
- Sickness – Flu, fever
- Pre-existing afflictions – Eyesight problems, leg or back injuries
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
These and certain other conditions can influence your performance in Field Sobriety Tests, or influence the accuracy of blood tests or breathalyzers. If you suffer from any of these conditions, or any other ailments that may have affected your ability to submit to standard DUI tests, notify your attorney. The information could be the key point in your defense. You can call the Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata to secure the services of a first-rate criminal defense attorney in Las Vegas.
