TPS2113A: Failure modes analysis

Part Number: TPS2113A

As part of our design we need to consider and assess all possible failure modes. Since the TPS2113A device is connected to both input power rails and to ground.

Is it possible that the TPS2113A could fail in such a way to crowbar both input rails to ground simultaneously? 

If yes do you have probability figures and what kind of abuse would be needed to cause such a failure?
