Attorneys for a 48-year-old Wethersfield man who suffered injuries that required surgery following a November 2013 car crash have agreed on a $425,000 settlement. The injured driver has also received $240,000 in workers’ compensation because he had been driving a company vehicle. The workers’ compensation claim remains open.

Christopher Bachteler’s vehicle was struck by a vehicle driven by Andrew Orvis, who was allegedly careless and negligent when backing out of his driveway, according to the eight-page amended lawsuit. The lawsuit, which was filed in Hartford Superior Court in October 2014, maintains Orvis failed to yield the right of way, backed his car out when it was not safe to do so and failed to ensure traffic was clear.
