Who is liable for what depends on the terms of your condo association agreement.
However, the general rule is that you're responsible for the things inside your walls and the association is responsible for everything else - including the common areas.
You will have to refer to your bylaws to see who is responsible for what. My guess is that if your insurance company says "no way", the condo assn. is responsible.
