How does an injury settlement work if I get into another car accident before the first one settles?

Question Details: I was involved in 2 separate accidents, both times I was not at fault. I was rear-ended at stop light, and then a year later I was rear ended at stop sign, I was completely stopped both times. I was also driving for Uber with a passenger in the car both times. I have disc herniation and was recommend for a disc replacement and have been approved for surgery. I was initially scheduled for neck surgery after the first accident and then the second accident happened before I was to start my pre-opt. Also, I have been recommend and approved to get a lumbar radio frequency neurotomy to get rid of my pain in lower back. Since the second accident happened before the first one was settled, how does that effect my case.
