That a personal injury attorney told you that you need a premises liability attorney is a bit of a misnomer. Premises liability is generally something that is handled by personal injury attorneys.
All premises liability means that is that to prove your case you have to show that there was a dangerous condition on the premises which was created by the owner that caused your injury. The fact that the church turned out the lights while you were in the building causing you to slip and fall is likely going to qualify for negligence under premises liability law.
You need to contact other personal injury attorneys to see if they will take your case. Most personal injury attorneys do premises liability cases as well. I also suggest that you call several attorneys and talk to them about your case, and then pick the one that you feel most comfortable with.
