We've never had a liability claim, but we know from our insurer that the same applies. The logic of it is expressed as you can't sue yourself.

A condo policy is to the collective owners as a private homeowner's policy is to the homeowner. If you fall in your own home you can't make a liability claim against yourself. Liability means being responsible for someone else's injury.

I'm in Canada where medical expenses for an injury are covered under our medical services plan, but for any expenses outside of that we would have to have some sort of accident insurance.

What if the person who falls and gets hurt is an owner? An owner in our

her expenses. We submitted a claim to our condo insurance company and they
denied it because they say the insurance covers only non-members.

condo insurance covered medical expenses for an owner?
Is what the insurance company says true? Any leeway?
Is there other insurance available that covers liability/medical for
