they can't make you go back to work; it's your choice.
if the employer has work within the doctor's restrictions, they don't have to make disability payments.
yes you can move out of state but it could cause delays in treatment as you need to find a doctor that will accept maryland work comp payments.
if there is litigation, being out of state may make it difficult for court appearances.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
