I was in an accident during work and have a pending workers

Hello, I was in an accident during work and have a pending workers comp claim. We are waiting for surgery approval, and Monday would be the 11th work day that I have yet to hear anything. I was sent deposition papers from my lawyer about 2 months ago for the date of Jan. 20th. 2017...which was yesterday. I asked him all week if the depo was still on, and he said no. Come to find out the my employer has talked with the defense attorney and it was never canceled...therefore we missed my depo. Why would my lawyer tell me it was canceled, expecially during this time of waiting for an approval? Could this cause my approval to be denied or even hurt my case?

I was arrested and released without having to post bail.The trooper called the next day and said she was charging me with control of premises where drugs are kept because she said it was better to be charged with than transportation, even though I'm originally charged with the transportation.What are my options?

I have a §1983 Claim for unconstitutional seizure and false

I have a §1983 Claim for unconstitutional seizure and false imprisonment. They asked me in my deposition to state all of my arrests and what the disposition. I informed counsel for Defendants that I had traffic offenses including a DUI, for which I did jail time.My understanding was that they could not use my DUI convictions against me because traffic offenses are no moral turpitude offenses. But I was hearing recently something about that the defense Attorney could tell the Jury to try to vitiate my damages arguing that my brief 20-minute detention could not have had such a significant effect if I already did 75 days in jail.Is it true that they can use the mere fact that I've been to jail against me regardless of the underlying charge when arguing damages?
