According to the Bournemouth Echo, 50-year-old osteoporosis sufferer Zena Street tripped over a concealed piece of wood on a path near her house as she returned home from work in 2006.
Ms Street - who previously lost one arm - fell on a marker that had been left on the surface following work there and suffered a fracture in her arm and three broken bones in her hand.
The 50-year-old told the news source it took her 20 minutes to reach the phone in her bag to call for help and added: "I'm sat like an invalid. I can't even wash, brush my hair or make a cup of tea and I can't go upstairs."
She went on to say that she is determined to seek damages from Dorset County Council for her ordeal.
