A local cab driver survived being shot twice while on the job.
It's a story that received national attention when it happened back in February of 2015. But now, a year and a half later, the cab driver says he's facing more problems.
It's a moment Frank O'Grady can't erase from his mind.
"I heard something to my left I turned and there was a gun pointed at my head," he says.
The scars are still fresh from being shot twice.
But it's a letter that's making the pain worse. It says O'Grady will only receive $748 in workers' compensation because he only suffers 1 percent of permanent disability. 
13 Action News went to visit the insurance company, York Services, several times. We tried to get a hold of them again on Friday but were unsuccessful again.
But O'Grady says he hopes to get some justice to help him move on.
"They shot at me 6 times and hit me twice," says O'Grady.
O'Grady says he hasn't been able to work for the last several months. He will have until the middle of the month to appeal this claim.
