How Forensic Toxicology Helps a Court Decide on Drunk Driving Cases

To help determine culpability, courts often employ a trusted forensic toxicologist like Dr. Nachman Brautbar to serve as expert witness. The team comprehensively reviews all evidences pertaining to a case—including sobriety test and Breathalyzer results—to determine if the defendant was indeed intoxicated when the incident occurred. The findings are then presented as a testimony that will hopefully guide the jury towards a decision.

While the number of drunk-driving-related injuries have decreased over the years in California, it is still a major road safety concern. Fortunately, forensic toxicology helps the law prosecute reckless motorists who insist on drinking and driving.
