If the thermostat failed it is not the fault of the mechanic, he didn't build the thermostat he just installed it. If it failed because of improper installation that is another story. But you are also At Fault,maybe more so than the mechanic ever hear of a temperature gauge. it doesn't just get to hot all of a sudden that happens with not stopping when it get in the red zone.
