www.martindale.com is actually quite easy to use. You only need to pick personal injury from the lawyer type and then put in your location and all lawyers meeting your criteria show up.
If you don't want to do that, your only other option is to get out the phone book and begin looking for Personal Injury attorneys. It's going to take some time to get this done.
What you've described is a personal injury issue. Try searching for a litigation attorney. This will broaden the spectrum.
