Understanding the Independent Blood Test Request Process in Maryland

When getting blood tests for your DUI case, a licensed physician or nurse must be the one to conduct them. The blood kit must be drawn properly, observed by an officer, and sealed for forensic examination. Typically, the police request two blood samples, and you can request a third to be collected for independent testing. This independent test must be done by a licensed private medical professional, which we can help you find. We ensure the company you choose for your independent test meets all requirements and has the proper certifications.

When the blood test is complete, you will receive the results, which we can then use as key evidence in your case. Having our lawyer’s help for this process is essential to ensure the blood test is conducted correctly and the results can be used to potentially reduce or drop your charges.

Can You Use Independent Blood Test Results as Evidence in Your Maryland DUI Case?

Your independent blood test results can be used as evidence in your DUI case. Based on your unique circumstances, we may utilize the information to demonstrate the following points:

  • You had a prescription drug in your bloodstream.
  • You have a condition that could have impacted your breathalyzer test results.
  • The police blood tests were not timed or administered properly.

In addition to being relevant to your case and complying with regulations, a licensed professional must authenticate your independent blood test results. This can be done through documentation, statements, records, and court testimony. Once we have confirmed your results follow these regulations, we may use them to challenge the state’s evidence and the police’s blood test results during the negotiations and trial.
