Like most states, Missouri has an implied consent law. This means that just by signing up for your driver's license, you automatically give your consent to the police to perform a blood test unless you specifically say otherwise. Most people understand that you are able to refuse a breath test, but there are plenty of situations where police are lawfully able to take your blood without even asking you first.

When Can Police Test My Blood To Find My Blood Alcohol Level?

  • When you consent to the test
  • When you are unconscious or unresponsive
  • If you have mouth injuries due to a car wreck
  • When you are otherwise not capable of refusing to take the test
  • If they receive a search warrant

Just because you didn't agree to a blood test and the police took samples anyway doesn't automatically mean you have a case. You need a lawyer with the experience and track record to know how to attack these cases.
