Losing a ground will have no effect on the circuit working properly. We are talking about the neutral/grounded conductor/return path.
There is a big differnce on how it used so read below for answer.Lot's of non electrical folks use 'ground' when the really are talking about 'neutral'
Especially young folks like Jim who like to work on hot rods---
As Speedy Petey expand this part I will keep it very short et sweet.,,That's unfortunate. There is a BIG difference.
For us non electrician ole nail whoopers would one of you answer this. I have always wondered why the ground and neutral or common wire connects to the same thing in the breaker box if they don't do the same thing?There is a big differnce on how it used so read below for answer.

Netural : Current carry conductor
Ground : NON curent carry conductor it used for protection and for fault condtions to assit the OCPD ( overcurrent protection device like breaker or fuse ) that about it.
