It's a tough case, since you saw the double-parked taxi before hitting it. The owner/operator of an illegally parked vehicle may be held somewhat liable for an accident that would not have otherwise occurred but for their double-parked presence on the roadway, but it will depend highly on the circumstances. A post-accident photo showing the position of the vehicles is very important. You almost always have to litigate cases involving NYC yellow cabs. Take a copy of the Police Report and any medical records relating to the accident to an attorney. Good luck.
