Using a realtor, I have signed a contract to purchase a home and put down some earnest money. Due to a sudden health issue, I may have to back out. Aside from forfeiture of earnest money, loan and application fee, could I be held liable in any other way

Yes you can.
But, it's not set in stone. It is all up to the seller and what he wants to do. It is possible that the seller will just accept the hand/earnest money and move on with his life.
