What happens if I am injured on the way to or from work in Maryland?
In Maryland, if you’re going to work or coming home from work, you’re generally not going to be covered by Maryland worker’s compensation. You’re not going to be entitled to benefits. The only exception is if you are required to drive to a place that your employer requires you to be, such as a conference or an errand on behalf of the employer. Otherwise, going to work and coming home from work would be covered by the going and coming rule, which is not compensated and is not a compensable injury, under Maryland worker’s compensation.
