I am sorry to hear that. If you have cerebral palsy, then please take help of a walking aid or a walking stick. It can be really dangerous at times to fall like this, so these aids will help prevent the fall to some extent. Please talk to your doctor regarding this.
There are many other causes of unexplained fall. One is that the proprioceptive receptors of foot are at fault and they are not able to take in the variation in the floor. This can happen if you have high blood sugar or hypothyroidism affecting the nerve endings. The other possibility is an internal ear problem. It an also be due to pinched cervical spinal nerve. Brain injuries, tumors, transient ischemic attacks and bleed in the brain have to be ruled out in your case. It can also be a vasovagal attack. Hypoglycemia, severe anemia and vasovagal attacks are common causes of such falls. It can also be MS but other causes need to be ruled out. It can also be a sleep related disorder with extreme sleep deprivation. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
