A release of some kind? It is obvious you do not know what kind. That is why we are required to have insurance. Your insurance carrier will know the exact kind of release that will protect you. Report this to your carrier.

Yes you should have an attorney review the release, but understand that if you have car insurance, you're violating your policy and your ins co won't defend you with legal help nor pay any damages later. Proceed at your own risk.
Bad idea to not have a release so absolutely. otherwise, she can come back after you for other damages!
