But it might just as well happen to you that you fail.

First I need to know what's is wrong with my sentence.
The following sentences for example is right.
She feels that it might just as well belong to her.

And both sentence are quite similiar in terms of their structure. So I absolutely don't know what's wrong here.



And what about these two sentences?
But it might also happen that you fail.
But it might also happen to you that you fail.

There's no need for the entire "happen" section in each one.

But you might fail.
Also, you might fail.

"You might as well fail" is possible but it has a different meaning from the one I think you're trying to express.
