There is always the chance of a complete brick when flashing but as long as you follow the instructions it is quite small. Samsung devices are quite hard to completely screw up, I've seen cases of gs2 roms being flashed onto gs3's and it was easily fixed by flashing a compatible Rom. The majority of fully bricked gs3's I've seen have been down to motherboard failure which wasn't due to flashing. As long as you make a nandroid backup, efs backup and app backup straight after rooting, you have all your bases covered should any problems arise.
