I was in a car accident where I was injured. I need to find a lawyer. My sister was driving during the accident; should we file together or should I find my own lawyer and file separately?

It depends. Call me for a free telephone consultation. After I know more, I can advise you whether to get your own attorney or not.
There is almost always a conflict of interest when an attorney represents both the driver of an automobile involved in a crash and a passenger. The reason is because many times the passenger has a claim against their own driver (even if the other driver was almost completely at fault).
So if one lawyer represents them both the lawyer cannot vigorously represent the passenger and do a good job for them,because that would mean suing the lawyer's other client..
I can help you with this if you like. Iím not allowed to put a phone number in here, but you can get it from my website.
