You are probably only liable for the car loan. I assume you just signed the promissory note. Did he purchase his own insurance, or is it yours?

I say probably because this turns on all sorts of facts you don't mention. Cosigners may be liable for accidents because they can be considered the co-owners of the vehicle.
