If the card was getting access, possible data corruption.

Usually you don't unlike mechanical drive, usually it gone. You could try recovery software. or if the data is really important, go to the pro recovery service.

99.999% of the time absolutely nothing happens. Flash memory can only be corrupted if data was being written at the time, and when it does get corrupted usually only a single page will corrupt.

You still haven't said if you have seen corruption or just wondering what to do when it happens. The two are very different. If there is corruption, you might be able to recover data using Rescue Pro or similar recovery software. If you want to protect yourself from corruptions, just back up the data!
