Victim Identified As 70-Year-Old Mario Torres Padilla

The tragic incident occurred on the morning of Monday, October 14th at the site of the unfinished Gilbert Public Safety Training Facility. The construction site, scheduled to open in 2021, is located at 6860 S Power Rd near the intersection with Pecos Rd.

The circumstances of the deadly accident are not yet public, but it is believed that some sort of heavy equipment tipped over onto the victim. Gilbert Police and Fire Department responders arrived on scene soon after the call and attempted life-saving measures on the man, but he was eventually pronounced dead.

The victim’s hometown, the Town of Gilbert, expressed their condolences through their Twitter account (@GilbertPolice) soon after the death was reported.

Kevin Biniazin, an experienced construction death attorney and contributor to, offered the following information for those injured in construction work who are wondering what legal options exist:

“When an employee is injured on a construction site, they should understand that even though their profession is known as a very dangerous one, this does not mean that they are not entitled to compensation. In fact, it’s likely that more construction workers receive a financial compensation after a work injury than any other industry.

Compensation for construction workers who suffer workplace injuries is achieved through a worker’s compensation claim. This claim, if successful, will award the victim with coverage for medical costs resulting from the incident and, in some cases, with a portion of lost wages.

On the other hand, if a worker is killed by a construction site accident, then their families have the right to seek justice on the victim’s behalf through a wrongful death lawsuit. This kind of legal proceeding can help pay for funeral and burial costs, lost inheritance, loss of companionship, and other damages.

In both cases, victims and their families should also understand that, if the correct steps are not taken, partial compensation may be all that is achieved. For this reason, the help of an attorney experienced in construction accident claims and lawsuits can be quite helpful in getting those affected by an injury the full compensation they need and deserve.”
