According to the Slough & South Bucks Observer, James Tarrant was thrown from his vehicle after he hit a pothole on a road in Iver in October 2008.
Consequently, the 62-year-old sustained injuries to his arm and wrist and also had to have a tooth extracted, meaning he then took legal action against Buckinghamshire County Council on the grounds they had failed to maintain the surface properly.
Mr Tarrant told the news source he hopes his case will highlight the need for local authorities to focus more on repairing road hazards such as potholes in order to make sure these surfaces are safe.
"The council encourages more people to cycle for the good of the environment, but when the roads are in such a bad condition it can be very unsafe," he stated.
