Where to get legal advice for at-fault accident in Georgia?

Last year we were in a car accident and at fault. We are in Georgia. No injuries were reported on the scene, but we recently found out that there is an open medical claim from this accident. We had crappy coverage, so I'm guessing the claim will be over our maximum injury coverage. We've never been through this before and are pretty anxious. Since our insurance company is not a resource for legal advice, what kind of lawyer or other advocate should I seek to understand and best cooperate with this process?

Can my employer make me sign away my workmans comp rights?

I work for a small business - a small chain of used bookstores. Recently, I broke my ankle. It was a home accident; I took a week off & then went back to work with a boot on my foot, crutches and a mobility knee scooter. My boss now wants me to sign a 2 page document in deepest legalese which, as far as I can tell, releases them from all liability of any kind if I hurt myself further by working while injured OR hurt anyone else (by running them over with my scooter?) This document would appear to never expire & says that I can never claim workmans comp, or, interestingly, that if I should die, my heirs cannot sue them. It also says that if I don't sign it they want me to go on unpaid leave until I am fully recovered. Under the ADA, aren't they supposed to make allowances for me? I am not asking them to pay for anything or even provide anything. [more inside]
