According to the Daily Mirror, Daryl Phillimore tripped over a defective paving stone while walking his dog in Basingstoke two years ago and is subsequently seeking a five-figure damages sum from the local authority there.
Mr Phillimore explained that he had already warned the council about the hazardous walkways in his neighbourhood and therefore blames the body - which is led by councillor Andrew Finney - for his injuries.
The 43-year-old said he was initially told by doctors that he had merely sprained his ankle during his fall, but added that he had to go back to hospital the next day as he was in "agony".
"I came out five weeks later minus three toes and a quarter of my right foot. It had become infected and the doctors said it had to be amputated," he added.
