Good luck with that broken neck!

Hals- und Beinbruch!

Neck and leg fracture!

Alternatively, “Good luck!” as in “Break a leg!” (which can also be rendered as Toi toi toi!). Curiously, der Hals appears in another expression where you are wishing someone anything but luck – jemandem den Hals brechen – “to ruin someone” or “to bring about someone’s downfall.”
