It’s definitely possible to raise a medical defense against a failed field sobriety test in New Jersey that led to an arrest for DUI.
It’s even possible to use medical conditions or disability to discredit the field sobriety evidence so that the chain of events that followed can’t be used by the prosecution.
People with conditions that affect balance, fine or gross motor skills, or pain conditions like chronic back pain or sciatica may have grounds to challenge the observations that the police made before taking you into custody.
These aren’t necessarily easy defenses to prove, but when you’ve been wrongly arrested for DUI based on a medical condition, it’s important to push back against police overreach.
Attorney Matthew Reisig has argued key points of DUI law all the way to the New Jersey Supreme Court, and successfully represented more than 1,001 DUI/DWI clients.
