Dorothy Bradbury, who is 61 years old, tripped in the middle of a road after losing her footing on a piece of the surface and subsequently fractured both of her ankles, the Sentinel reports.
Therefore, Mrs Bradbury is pursuing a claim for damages from Stoke-on-Trent City Council - led by councillor Mohammed Pervez - due to the fact that she is now housebound and in constant pain.
"I fell into a sort of crater where the road had sunk," she explained.
Mrs Bradbury added that she believes she is entitled to compensation for her ordeal and went on to say: "I think the state of the roads in the city is disgusting."
Meanwhile, her husband Clive stated that the road is a "disgrace" and urgently needs repair work.
