Admissibility of Blood Alcohol Content


Our attorneys will discuss and analyze the recent Pennsylvania Supreme Court case of Coughlin v. Massaquoi, in which the Court declined to adopt a bright-line rule concerning whether independent corroborating evidence of a pedestrian's intoxication is required in order for blood alcohol content (BAC) evidence to be properly admitted. Specifically, our attorneys will examine the implications of this significant holding, which arguably opens the door to BAC or blood test evidence being deemed admissible in the absence of an eyewitness or similar evidence corroborating the plaintiff's impairment.
