No, but unravelling the correct usage here is tricky. Normally the verb agrees with the closest subject, which would yield You or I am mistaken, which sounds wrong; and so some people will say You or I are, which is barbarous but does not sound that wrong since we are used to hearing the equally barbarous "aren't I" ( which is a mistake inspired by reluctance to use the more correct but decidedly non-standard "ain't I"). Careful speakers will say Either you are mistaken or I am.
