driving with hand-brake on on 1994 Chevrolet Lumina

I drove 3-4 miles with hand brake on. Started smelling burnt and suddenly there was smoke coming out by my left rear tire. What do I need to do to make sure brakes weren't permanently damaged? Thank you

if the brake pedal doesn't pulsate and the brakes still work good, then i wouldn't worry about it. the worst damage you could have done is warp the rotor or overheat the pad, which would decrease braking performance.
