Refused a Breath Test? You Need Top-Rated Defender to On Your Side

Law of Implied Consent

DUI Attorney in Lynnwood

According to the state law in Washington, a person implies their consent to a breath or blood test when they sign to receive their driver's license. To drive in this state is a privilege, not a right, and the Department of Licensing does everything in their power to ensure that drivers stay safe.

As such, the Law of Implied Consent was put into action to ensure that a person submits to a breath or chemical test in the event of a potential DUI stop. If you were arrested for DUI after refusing a breath test, you may be facing serious criminal consequences; you will need to talk to a Lynnwood criminal lawyer as soon as possible.

At the Law Office of Lance R. Fryrear, the legal team works quickly and efficiently to ensure that all of their clients are protected by an advocate of the law. The team understands that being charged with DUI will be frightening, and you may believe that they have no evidence against you because you refused the test.

Unfortunately, a person who refuses a test in the state of Washington is subject to similar consequences, including license suspension. Only an experienced DUI defense lawyer will be able to help challenge the charges against you.

Defense Lawyer for Your Lynnwood DUI Charges

While it may seem strange that a person can be charged with DUI without any physical evidence of intoxication, the law is set up this way. It ensures that all drunk drivers are penalized, along with any person in question.

However, there may have been a valid reason for you to refuse the test, and your attorney will be sure to establish this point. In some cases, a person may have a medical condition that prevents them from giving a blood test.

Another example of a refused breath test can include a person who is feeling ill, so they refuse the test in fear that the medication they are on will produce a false positive for DUI. Despite the reason you refused the test, it is still against the law and the prosecution will still seek all maximum penalties.

For more information on defense against DUI charges due to a breath or blood test refusal and the implied consent law, contact a Lynnwood DUI attorney today.
