That depends upon whether the landlord was negligent in causing the damage. Landlords do not insure against all damages that occur to a tenants property.

It is possible that your landlord's insurance might cover you. If the lease provides it does not and encourages you to get renters insurance, your landlord may not be responsible. It also depends upon the cause of the leak. You should consult with a local attorney who can walk you through the process if need be.
