The internet and AVVO are excellent resources to help you find a lawyer. You can look at attorneys' websites to read about their experience and qualifications. We have handled many cases against METRO, and I would be more than happy to discuss this with you. You are welcome to give me a call.
First of all, I hope you sought medical treatment before trying to find a lawyer. That being said, use the AVVO "Find a Lawyer" tool. An experienced personal injury attorney in the DC Metro area will tell advise you as to the most appropriate venue in which to file legal action.
You may be actually asking two questions. First, with respect to a lawyer with experience against Metro, such a lawyer could be found in either of the three jurisdictions. If your question is where could you file a lawsuit, again, you could file in any of the jurisdictions as Metro has sufficient "contacts" such that you could file suit in any of the three jurisdictions.
