In brief: Unlikely

Hepatitis a does cause some inflammation of the liver, but unlike hep b or c, does not cause ongoing chronic inflammation ("hepatitis").
It is a self-limiting disease that in the short term can make you sick, but doesn't have any long-term sequelae.

In brief: Not very

Likely. I would venture that less than 10% of all HAV infections take a fulminant course.
