Chemical Test Refusals in New York

The state of New York enforces what is known as the law of implied consent. This law requires any driver who is arrested under suspicion of DWI to submit to a chemical test – including breath and blood tests – when asked by an officer. While you have the right to refuse a chemical test, the implied consent law will subject you to penalties for doing so. Drivers who refuse chemical tests, for example, may have their licenses automatically suspended and revoked for a minimum of one year.

Challenging Chemical Tests in Hudson Valley

Challenging chemical test results can be part of an effective defense. Although breath and blood tests are used widely throughout the country to test drivers for impairment, they are far from perfect. In some cases, these tests can result in inaccurate readings, especially when equipment hasn't been calibrated or properly maintained. Our legal team works to secure calibration records for testing equipment and conducts full evaluations of chemical test results when defending clients charged for DWI. An attorney from our firm can help you learn more about chemical tests, your rights, and the steps you can take to protect your freedom and future.
