If you were aware of a leak....informed no one, took no steps to repair or prevent the water from escaping your apartment and damaging your neighbor's are. However, if you are talking of a sudden and accidental occurence....neither you, the neighbors or the owner/landlord had warning or knowledge of the potential water escaping...your insurance covers your property, the neighbor's insurance covers his etc...
