Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI)

Did alcohol contribute to or cause the incident?  What was the BAC at the time of driving?

IFC offers expertise in the evaluation, investigation and determination of alcohol involvement in:

  • Driving under the influence cases: Did alcohol cause or contribute to poor driving or a crash?
  • Determining if BAC is consistent with drinking history: Is the blood alcohol concentration consistent with having 2 drinks, 3 hours ago?
  • Back-calculating blood alcohol concentrations to the time of the incident: If blood is collected 2 hours after an accident, what should the BAC have been at the time of the accident and does it agree with the test results?
  • Could my client have been below 0.05% / 0.08% or 0.15% at the time of driving?
  • Could the results be lower of higher due to the inaccuracy of the testing instrument?
  • Could post-incident alcohol consumption explain the results?
  • Are effects consistent with observations? Is the individual’s slurred speech due to their pain medication, alcohol or neither?
  • Correlating BAC from serum or urine results: What can I conclude from alcohol in a serum or urine sample?

IFC are happy to address any of these questions or any others you may have and routinely provide advice and reports addressing all issues relating to Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.
