My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: CA
I had my deposition today, and I am a nervous wreck about it. My attorney says it went well but I honestly think I blew it, because I left some stuff out and I talked too much, even though my attorney said to stick to short answers, the questions were not sufficiently answered in short answers, so I had to elaborate a bit. In my peripheral vision, I saw my attorney put his face in his hand a few times, and it seemed like he was embarassed or frustrated, but he didn't say anything, which leaves me very distressed and confused.
Seeing my scheduling manager there also had an extreme emotional toll on me, which I wasn't expecting. I was totally caught off guard with him being there. I watched a video that my attorney's office sent to me saying that company reps are rarely there, so I wasn't expecting it. Now I am a nervous wreck, full of anxiety and fear, and I hate having to deal with these emotions. I already deal with anxiety, so this really triggered it. I did not show any emotion during the depo, but it all came crashing in on me when I arrived home. It's been a few hours, and I am still nervous and have broken down into tears a couple times.
I am actually thinking of just settling. I wasn't going to before, but all of these horrible emotions are just too much for me, and I don't know if I can handle it if we go to trial. Just being around my old employers fills me with depression, anxiety, and paranoia.
I don't know what to do right now. Im so confused. Please give me some advice. I'm stressed
