In Munsch v. 205-209 East 57th Street Associates, LLC, a gemeral contractor hired an electrical contractor to install temporary lighting at a job site. The plaintiff, who worked at the site for another subcontractor, tripped on wood scraps or electrical debris because, he said, no lighting had been installed. He sued the electrician for negligence. The court ruled that the plaintiff was within his rights to assert such a negligence claim based upon the electrician's alleged breach of the electrician's contract with the general contractor.
