Use Google and type in "workers compensation lawyer pittsburgh". Go to the websites of lots of lawyers who claim to be work comp attys. Choose a few that appear to have lots of experience (more than 15 years). Call a few of them, and make an appointment with the one you feel most comfortable talking to.
Call up Shelley Elovitz at Rothman-Gordon and tell him I sent you there.
If you are closer to Greensburg than downtown Pittsburgh, then call Vince Quatrini. Guys who know comp know and respect these guys.
