What Is an Absorption Rate? Defending Your Rights, Empowering Your Future

What Is an Absorption Rate?

Absorption rate is the rate at which a person’s body absorbs and metabolizes alcohol, something that can have a major impact on when a person become impaired. It can even impact how impaired a person actually gets. A person's alcohol absorption rate affects the rise and fall of their blood alcohol concentration (BAC), or the amount of alcohol in their system. There is a period after a person drinks when their BAC rises and then reaches its peak before falling. Depending on when the blood or breath test is taken, a driver's BAC level could end up being higher than the level it was at when he or she was driving. Officers and prosecutors often take a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to DUI / OWI cases. In reality, physiology differs from person to person, so alcohol affects people differently.

What Factors Affect Alcohol Absorption Rates in Michigan?

If you are facing charges for the offense of driving under the influence or operating while intoxicated, it is important that your alcohol absorption rate is fully considered in your case. It could potentially turn out that aspects of your alcohol absorption rate made you appear impaired at the time you were arrested, but actually had no bearing on your driving. I, Attorney Daniel Hajji, help DUI/OWI defendants take their alcohol absorption rates into account when they are building their defense strategy.

Some of the factors that could have an impact on a person's alcohol absorption rate include:
