You would most likely be liable, since even though you were released by the driver, you were "told previously that I had seizures": you therefore had warning of a seizure condition and to keep driving with knowledge you could have seizures would be unreasonably careless, unless you were on some medical treatement (e.g taking some drug or medication) which would control them. But without you being on some medical regime to conrol seizures, it is careless to drive trucks if you have susceptibility to seizures.
