In some towns or cities yes. We can in Canada. *Filing a lawsuit for any reason should be a last resort rather than the first choice. In US cities a motorist who has incurred damage should file a complaint with the city street department. Please be advised, generally a claim will not be considered valid if the pothole or obstruction that caused the damage was not previously reported to the proper agency.
