Personal Injury specialist Mark Ellis is renowned in his area of practice, and continues to make a big difference for clients that visit Tilly Bailey & Irvine.
Part of the Teesside firm since 1988, he became a Partner for TBI and has held that position ever since 1993. Mark has been a professional member of the Law Society Personal Injury panel since its inception and is an APIL accredited litigator.
Mark has specialised in personal injury litigation since his graduation from Hull University, acting for a large number of injured claimants and securing compensation either by negotiation or litigation where necessary.
He deals with claims ranging from road traffic accidents, accidents at work and trips and falls to industrial disease cases, the latter now his specialist area.
Mark's superior knowledge has helped many claimants suffering from noise induced hearing loss, hand/arm vibration syndrome, COPD and asbestos related injuries - all very complex matters that require the right attention.
For example, Mark has successfully taken on injury cases that previous legal firms could not complete due to the complex nature of these injuries, including one instance where the difference between Pleural Thickening and Pleural Plaques was not identified correctly by the original firm's solicitor.
Mark has secured damages that grow into six-figure outcomes and beyond, driven by a desire to find justice for people who were injured through no fault of their own.
He also has a passion for travelling and extreme sports, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, Elbrus and Ararat. Mark is also holder of a Second Dan Black belt in karate/kick boxing, which may explain why we don't argue with any of his opinions anymore.....
