under workmen compensation act, employee leaving/ reaching back home comes udner the purview of "notional extension of time n space" and so entitled for compensation.
in May another ruling from Haryana came up.
as per this ruling, if an employee gets injured/ permannetl disabled then work out the following before asking him to leave:
a) alternative employment
b) retirement benefits
in case of total inability of the company to provide alternative employement then definitely more compensation

Your employee met an accident after comleting half day duty returning to home. However, company need not pay full month salary for his rest period neither they are liable to pay any accident compensation. But it depends on co. discreation to pay full salary / compensation.
If your employer opened any group mediclaim policy from Insureance co., then he can apply for reimbursement of expenses subject to limit.
Presently in Maharashtra state, notional extension was abolished so there was no question to pay full salary. You pl. check this rule applicability in the W.C. Act.
