Question about settlement, work comp vs personal insurance of driver

I was involved in a hit and run accident, I was off road way at work. Driver was found soon after and did carry quality insurance. Vehicle left road way and struck the mower and myself. I didn’t have life threatening injuries but had significant scrapes bruises and whiplash related shoulder issues. Work comp has covered medical expenses. My question is as my medical treatment draws to an end, things have gotten mostly better but not 100%, can I settle with the drivers insurance for only pain and suffering and negotiate that, Or does a settlement involve both medical and pain and suffering? Is there a way to let work comp continue to handle the medical and I simply negotiate for pain and suffering or are the two inseparable?
