Do I have a legal right to obtain my own blood alcohol test?

Yes. In Georgia, a person who is given a state-administered chemical test is entitled to obtain additional samples of blood, urine, or other bodily substances at their own request and by qualified personnel of their own choosing. It is necessary that the driver make arrangements to obtain the test, and to have the means to pay for it at the time.

Your Atlanta DUI attorney can work with you even after you have been arrested to obtain the results of a chemical test taken by the police following a DUI stop and arrest.
