Can bad sectors cause entire encrypted partition useless?

On my 500 GB HDD I have a partition about 150 GB in size that's encrypted using TrueCrypt software.

Suppose a few bad sectors develop on that partition and HDD attempts to reallocate the same and fails, would it in away mean that now the entire TrueCrypt encrypted partition could all the way fail to mount itself?

Or would it depend upon where the bad sectors develop on that partition and what data was present on the same that point in time?
Thanks.
