Does home insurance cover sidewalks?

I have two sidewalks surrounding my property. I'm wondering if they're covered by my insurance.

Your homeowners insurance may cover injuries if someone were to sue you due to an unmaintained sidewalk. However, in most cases, sidewalks are not covered on a home policy if they’re considered to be a preexisting hazard that was ignored by the homeowner.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
