Michael D. Cerasa was born and raised in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. He relocated to Central Florida following his graduation from The Florida State University College of Law. Recognized as a Florida Super Lawyer and member of the National Association of Distinguished Counsel, Michael is sought out by clients nationwide for his expertise in handling a wide range of Plaintiffs injury, product liability and insurance claims.
Michael’s approach to the representation of his clients is aggressive, but measured. He takes his role as both attorney, and as counselor, seriously.
“My duty to my clients is to diligently fight for their best interests above all else. However, I pride myself on being able to advise clients on a rational, personal level, ensuring that they can make the decisions that are best for them and their family.”
As a Longwood personal injury attorney, Michael is a tireless advocate for people injured due to the negligence of others. His practice involves the representation of people injured in automobile accidents, trucking accidents, and due to defective and dangerous medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
“After an accident, a person’s life can be turned upside down. The process of dealing with insurance companies can be overwhelming when an injured individual needs to focus on getting well physically and mentally. My role is to take on that burden and be a friend and confident in that process.”
Most recently, Michael has gotten involved in litigation against Johnson & Johnson related to talcum powder causing ovarian cancer in some women, and against Bayer related to its potentially dangerous blood thinning drug, Xarelto.
“Too often, medical devices and pharmaceuticals are put on the market and the manufacturer knows or should know that the product is too dangerous to the user. These companies put profit ahead of patients. One of the most satisfying parts of my practice is helping people fight back against such reckless behavior.”
