A man who sought millions in damages against property group Mirvac, claiming he slipped and fell into a glass pane at one of its Sydney shopping centres, has had his case dismissed.

Vangu Kitoko launched legal action against the real estate giant saying he suffered a brain aneurism and pain throughout his body after he hit the window pane of a sliding glass door at the Broadway Shopping Centre on October 5, 2010.

But Judge Michael Elkaim rejected his bid in the NSW District Court this month, saying “contrary to the plaintiff’s version, he simply walked into the pane of glass”.

    It's this sort of frivolous claim that does nothing but adds to the cost of property and the effective rents which tenants are forced to pay.

    In all environments, people should exercise due care and not go ahead with these frivolous claims.
