$36,000,000 Santa Fe Jury Verdict for Auto Accident and Bad Faith - Gauthier & Maier Law Firm vs. State Farm - A Case of Broken Promises and Bad Faith

Posted by Shane Maier | Nov 02, 2023 | 4 Comments

On October 31, 2023, a Santa Fe jury decided that Andrea Lovato was not fully at fault for the accident and that State Farm had breached the $1,000,000 contract, committed bad faith, and violated the Unfair Trade Practices Act and Unfair Insurance Practices Act. The Jury awarded the family $12,000,000 in damages for the auto accident and another $24,000,000 in bad faith damages with $20,000,000 as punitive penalty damages to State Farm. The $36,000,000 verdict gave the family confirmation and validation that Andrea Lovato was not 100% at fault for the accident as State Farm always claimed her to be and that their conduct was cruel and malicious to the family.

Memorial Statement from Family of Mary Melero

Thank you to everyone that came today and to those who were unable to join us in person, but were here in their thoughts and prayers. The family appreciates the community’s continuing support in honoring Mary and seeking a change to the system that killed her. Mary was a happy and innocent lady who was always ready to make people laugh. However, Mary’s caretakers abused her innocence. They were allowed to torture and kill Mary in a system that allowed a felon to control Mary without any oversight and/or supervision. The community has raised its voice that change is necessary and necessary now.
