Medical Defenses That Can Win Your Drinking and Driving Case

Written by: The Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata

Although many people that take a breath analyzer test that is at or above the legal limit of .08 means they have no hope of winning their DUI case, there are many different factors that can lead to an inaccurate reading. An experienced Las Vegas criminal lawyer like Garret T. Ogata is familiar with the medical defenses and will know which ones might play a role in getting your drinking and driving charges dropped. Gastric Reflux Disease, lung and heart disease, inner ear problems, diabetes, and even your dentures or bridge work are just some of the conditions that you should tell your attorney about so that he has the best opportunity to prepare a successful defense.

Even if your Las Vegas criminal lawyer fails to get the drinking and driving charges against you dropped, he may still use this information to have your case dismissed during the trial. G.T. Ogata has successfully defended many clients who have had a medical condition that could have interfered with the results of the breathalyzer or blood test they were given at the time of their drunk driving arrest. It is important to contact your lawyer immediately after your arrest and let him know about any medical conditions you have and/or medications you may have been taking at the time.
