The outage caused by a construction accident forced an estimated 50,000 visitors to leave Hatteras and Ocracoke islands, and others never made it to the popular vacation spots because of evacuation orders that are still in place.The lawsuits, which are seeking class-action status, argue the company's workers failed to take proper precautions to ensure its work didn't financially harm nearby businesses.Workers were setting aside equipment that wasn't in use when they caused a massive power outage, according to the state Department of Transportation.The travel insurance plans, marketed under the Trip Preserver brand, have a road closure provision that will likely apply, but the claims are evaluated individually, said Linda Fallon, senior vice president of Arch Insurance Group.Customers of another rental company, Surf or Sound Realty, had the option before their visits of buying travel insurance that was underwritten by AIG.
