Geherin Law Group Helps Clients Win Refusal Implied Consent Suspension Appeals

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Every Michigan driver's license holder "impliedly consents" to have his/her breath, blood or urine tested upon reasonable request of a peace officer during an OWI investigation.  If you refuse a police officer's request for a chemical test, your license may be automatically suspended for one year.  This is called an "Implied Consent Refusal," and your prompt response to this allegation is crucial.  We suggest you call an experienced DUI attorney in Washtenaw County immediately after a refusal allegation so that you don't miss important deadlines.

Police officers must have reasonable grounds to request the chemical test, and they must also follow regulations on how they advise the driver about a potential refusal.  It's also important to note that there are some reasonable and acceptable grounds for refusing these tests.  Not all refusals are guaranteed to be violations of the Implied Consent law, and the actions of the police officer can be challenged at the Secretary of State and in court, if necessary.
