Biography

Teagan Allen is an experienced attorney, well-versed in general, professional, and product liability matters. She works with clients from the onset of litigation through trial or settlement - coordinating the legal strategy; managing the litigation team; conducting expert witness evaluations, depositions, and discovery; and personally overseeing site and product inspections.

Teagan represents clients across a wide range of industries including hospitality, retail, amusement parks, sports and entertainment, construction, real estate and home inspection, law, and commercial transportation. She has successfully defended product manufacturers and distributors, restaurant and nightclub owners, real estate brokers, residential and commercial property managers, law firms, and insurance companies in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She has also served as counsel in catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death and survival, and professional malpractice matters.

Upon graduating from Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law, Teagan served as a judicial fellow to the Hon. Mark I. Bernstein in the Court of Common Pleas, Commerce Division in Philadelphia. While there she drafted opinions, conducted in-depth legal research, and provided recommendations on preliminary objections and motions in cases involving commercial litigation and real property disputes. She also gained valuable, behind-the-bench insight into court proceedings, motion hearings, jury selection, discovery, and attorney conferences.

Reported Cases:
Significant Representative Matters: Summary Judgment in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (Camden) on behalf of the manufacturer and designer of high performance racing boats in a maritime product liability action. Plaintiff filed suit against the manufacturer, and co-Defendant, the driver and owner of a boat sales company, for catastrophic injuries sustained during a boating accident in Ship's Channel, Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. Discovery revealed that Plaintiff and co-Defendant had switched the type of propellers on the vessel from four blade, to five blade propellers, an hour before the accident. Summary judgment was granted due to the absence of supporting expert testimony, and lack of foreseeability in connection with the manufacturing, design, and warning defect claims.; Summary Judgment in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County on behalf of a Property Management Company, in a personal injury matter arising from an alleged slip and fall on ice and snow. Teagan successfully argued that the claims against the Property Management Company should be dismissed because the discovery revealed that the client was not responsible for the property, and had no actual or constructiver notice of the alleged condition.Therefore, the client neither owed, nor breached any duty to the Plaintiff.; Obtained dismissal of Plaintiffs' Complaint on behalf of a community association in a property damage action venued in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Morris County, Special Civil Part. The lawsuit arose out of a claim for mold and water damage allegedly arising from a shared condensate line in a multi-unit condominium building. Teagan successfully argued that the Complaint should be dismissed, as Plaintiffs had filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and the bankruptcy estate was the real party in interest. Therefore, Plaintiffs lacked proper standing to proceed with the suit. The Court agreed, and dismissed Plaintiffs' Complaint prior to trial.; Successfully argued a Motion for Summary Judgment, dismissing Plaintiff's Dram Shop Claims in high exposure Dram Shop and Negligent Security action against a Philadelphia social club in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.; Drafted a successful Motion to Dismiss on jurisdictional grounds in a copyright infringement matter in the U.S.D.C., Eastern District of Pennsylvania.; Settled a premises liability matter against a West Philadelphia restaurant in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, for $1.00 on the eve of trial.; Obtained Summary Judgment on co-Defendant's Joinder Complaint, against client trucking broker, based on case law regarding non-liability for trucking brokers under negligent selection of independent contractor analysis in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.; Successfully argued for dismissal of Plaintiff's Complaint following presentation of Defendant's Motion for Sanctions in a personal injury matter arising from an alleged roller skating accident before the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. Defendant sought dismissal of Plaintiff' Complaint, due to Plaintiff's failure to comply with numerous Court Orders. At the hearing Teagan adeptly articulated the nature and degree of Plaintiff's obstructionist conduct during the course of discovery, which justified the dismissal of Plaintiff's case, with prejudice.; Obtained numerous binding and non-binding defense judgments in Philadelphia and New Jersey Superior Court arbitration matters on behalf of local and national businesses involving premises liability and automobile liability matters.; Represented condominium/community associations in numerous New Jersey Superior Court, Special Civil Part proceedings, obtaining highly favorable Defense outcomes prior to trial.; Assisted in securing numerous tender acceptances in construction, premises liability, and amusement, sports and entertainment matters.
