    It depends on the type of injury and infection. If the infection progresses to affect the brain and linings of the brain then death is a possibility. In cervical neck injuries, death can occur as well but would happen almost immediately after the injury. An infection, although rapid, takes days (or even a week or more) to progress to the point where it can cause death. Early treatment would prevent this.
