Field Sobriety Tests 

Field Sobriety Test Defense Lawyers in Worcester

Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights

Determining the validity of your arrest and the evidence of field sobriety tests, Breathalyzer tests, and blood tests is one of the most critical parts of an OUI defense. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, our Worcester criminal defense lawyers can investigate your case and determine if the tests were handled incorrectly, and if appropriate, we can then argue to have the results of the tests suppressed.

Challenges to Breathalyzer & Field Sobriety Test Results

Breathalyzer and field sobriety tests must be administered correctly to be admissible in court. Our Worcester criminal defense attorneys can work hard to try and get the charges reduced or dismissed. There are numerous reasons that Breathalyzer, blood, and field sobriety test results can be suppressed, including the conditions of the tests.

If the person who administered the tests was not properly trained on the equipment, we can contest the results in court. We can also look at the timing of the tests as well as the qualifications of the person who administered them. In addition, if the police failed to properly observe you for 15 minutes, we can file a motion to suppress the Breathalyzer results.

Factors to consider when challenging Breathalyzer test results include:

  • Defective test equipment

  • Improperly calibrated test equipment


  • Metabolism rate


  • Medical conditions


  • Hiccupping or vomiting during the test

In Massachusetts, individuals with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent or higher are considered above the legal limit. For people ages 18 and under, the limit is just .02 percent. If your BAC is above the legal limit, you will be charged with OUI, and the Worcester OUI lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can seek evidence to challenge your test results in court.

Defense Lawyers to Challenge BAC Test Results

Blood tests are also used in some situations to determine the BAC of a driver. If you are taken to the hospital after an accident, you can refuse to have your blood drawn. If the hospital takes your blood, however, the police will be able to get a sample and test your BAC.

Our Worcester criminal defense attorneys can review the various tests you were given to determine their validity. Police must have adequate training to correctly administer these tests, and the roadside conditions must not interfere with the results. We work hard to seek a positive outcome for our clients, and we strive to provide the best representation possible.
