After an accident It was taken against my will. From what I was told I was put under on the scene. I had memory loss from hitting my head on the pavement when I fell off a minibike.
If the blood was taken at the request of the police and given to them without a warrant it should not be usable against you. But this would be subject to a "suppression" hearing at which the presiding judge would determine whether the prosecution can use the blood.
If the blood was taken by the paramedics or the hospital for treatment purposes, then the blood sample can be obtained by the police and tested. However, the police cannot get the results of the blood tests done by the hospital. Hospitals usually will test a blood sample of an ER patient for alchhol or drugs before administering treatment.
