A : A "dislocated neck" is a very very event. I'm not certain what you mean by "cranial nerve damage." heart falure generally results from years of heart disease or heart valve disease but can certainly happen if someone is very ill or severely injured. Liver failure is usually the result of many years of damage to the liver wither with infection or alcohol abuse with resulting ascites, but sometimes people can go into liver failure beacuse of a sudden and devestating illness like sepsis (massive infection) or severe injury. Without knowing any other particulars about your case, it would be difficult to comment further.
