According to the Hull Daily Mail, Jean Stephenson is taking legal action against Hull City Council - which is led by councillor Steve Brady - after tripping over on an uneven pavement near her home in the urban area last month.
The 58-year-old suffered a fractured elbow as well as breaks in both hands in an incident where her foot got caught on a sunken drain lid, causing her to fall forwards onto her arms.
Consequently, Ms Stephenson noted she is currently reliant on carers who visit her home twice every day to help her complete everyday tasks such as eating, washing and getting dressed.
"It's all been a dreadful shock ... I'm hoping that by my taking legal action the council will wake up and do something to improve the area," she told the news source.
