A true story of a car "victim'.
If you are the rear vehicle, and the taxi in the front vehicle, then you will be asking for trouble.
Besides the above link, some of my friends and relatives who were involved in a car accident with a taxi were shocked to find out the claim amount against them. It is not just a simple claim on the repair of the taxi vehicle's damages. There are many items which you will be shocked when you received the claim report from your insurance companies. Remember to check with your insurance company on the exact claim amount and what are the items claimed. Many of you think that your insurance companies will take care of all claims and thus didn't bother to find out what exactly are claimed by the claimant.
In eyes of the law, there is nothing much that the driver of the rear vehicle to contest the claim amount unless you have strong evidence to present the case on the front vehicle which is at fault.
