A shoulder dislocation that is bad enough to cause a brachial plexus stretch injury can leave the are paralyzed usually this resolves with time but it can be incomplete.

In brief: Many

A fracture that severely damages the humeral head or the socket (the glenoid) can be difficult to repair even in the best surgeon's hands.
A shoulder replacement (there are a couple types) may be required in these cases.

The ultimate worst injury to a shoulder involves damage to the nerves going to it and then down the arm
