In brief: Neck fracture

It all depends. If there was no nerve or spinal cord injury from the fracture then any aftermath is very unlikely.
However, if there has been compression of a vertebra as a result of the fracture and it is not properly braced (or occasionally operated) there may be deformity or other consequences.
