Refusing a Chemical Test in Colorado
DUI Defense Lawyer in Arapahoe County
Chemical test refusal in Colorado can drastically change the circumstances
of your DUI case. Most people do not understand how refusing a Breathalyzer
or blood test affects a DUI, especially the time-sensitive issues that
suddenly come up. At the Law Offices of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C., I work
hard to defend clients from being convicted of DUI.
The first thing you need to do after an arrest for DUI or when you find
yourself in legal trouble is to
contact an experienced Denver DUI defense lawyer to learn about the defenses for your case.
As one of Denver's most recognized DUI defense attorneys, I have devoted
my practice to defending DUI and criminal cases. My reputable firm is
known throughout Colorado for providing highly personalized, hands-on
legal representation. If you value having experienced and affordable legal
representation, do not hesitate to reach out to my firm today.
What Happens if I Refuse a Chemical Test?
There are three types of chemical tests that can be used:
- Breath testing
- Blood testing
- Urine testing
If you refused to take a blood or breath test upon being arrested or if
you submitted a breath test over the legal limit of 0.08% BAC, you have
no longer than seven days to request a hearing with the Department of
Motor Vehicles. You may not realize how time sensitive this is—or
that refusing to request a hearing will mean an automatic revocation of
your driving privileges.
