This ain't legal advice -- it's brain surgery -- if he is negligent in causing an accident that is the result of the trailer or pulling the trailer you are responsible for providing (loaning) the trailer to a negligent driver. Same thing if you let someone borrow your car -- yours will be the second name on the list of defendants. I'm not sure about an accident that has nothing to do with the trailer, e.g. if he turns the wrong way onto a one-way street and meets another vehicle head-on.
