Will a foot laceration kill me? Or does it just heal up by itself?

In brief: Low Risk

You shouldn't die from a foot laceration, especially if you get it checked by a doctor. Poor circulation, a deep contaminated cut, diabetes, a smoker, active hemorrhage, retained foreign body in the wound, unknown tetanus vaccine status are all factors that put you at high risk for potentially life threatening complications.
Please see your healthcare provider.
