Unfortunately no. If you income benefits are calculated properly there is no way to increase them due to the severity or seriousness of you injury. In Georgia they take the 13 weeks prior to your injury and they average the weekly pay to come up with your average weekly pay, then they pay you 67% no matter what that number is at the time of injury that is your weekly benefit amount.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
