We Take Slip and Fall Accidents Seriously
Attorney Michael Cerasa holds negligent parties accountable
Slip and fall accidents are a common cause of personal injuries. They are often devastating, painful, and expensive for victims and their families. The money and resources required to recover can be huge. The Cerasa Law Firm LLC fights for the rights of victims and helps them recover financial compensation.
About 1 million people wind up in hospital emergency rooms every year due to slip and falls. In just one year, Floridians paid more than $450 million out of pocket for fall-related treatments.
In Florida, the median admission charge for non-fatal, fall-related injury hospitalization at places like The Village, Osceola Regional Medical Center, and Central Florida Regional Hospital, is more than $52,000.
Your slip and fall accident is serious to you, your family, and our firm. Property owners owe you a reasonable degree of safety. By coming forward and filing a claim you are not only restoring a stable future for you and your family, but your claim will also help stop property owners from hurting others.

Slip and fall attorney Michael Cerasa works hard researching your case. When he demands the insurance companies give you all you need to recover physically, emotionally, and financially, our firm has the evidence necessary to back it up.
Property owner’s responsibilities
People who own, or in many cases occupy, a rented home, condominium, apartment, or business have a responsibility to provide you with a reasonable level of safety – in some cases, even if you weren’t invited.
This goes for public properties like Orlando City Hall or government-owned parks like Lake Eola, too.
In general, Florida property owners must:
- Reasonably correct or warn others of known dangers to the property in a manner that a visitor cannot or should not be able to miss
- Maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition. In some cases, especially those involving businesses, the property owner may also be required to implement measures for the prevention of foreseeable third-party crimes, like an assault or mugging
- Not cause willful or wanton injury – even to people who may have wandered onto the premises.
Florida slip and fall risk
Some of the most common injuries resulting from slip and falls include traumatic brain injury, brokens hip, neck or spinal fracture and contusion. These are often caused by slips or falls involving wheelchairs, beds or stairs.
Central Florida has a particularly high rate of unintentional fall-related injuries and deaths. In Orange County alone there are hundreds of serious slips and falls per 100,000 residents report per year.
To prevent slip and falls, the National Safety Council recommends that property owners keep floors and surfaces clear of clutter, install handrails on stairways, properly arrange furniture to create open pathways, maintain good lighting indoors and out, and keep electrical and phone cords out of traffic areas.
