Everything can/does fail.
Hopefully all you did was overheat the brake and boil out the lube. If so you should be able to re-pack it and go on your merry way.
There are all sorts of little fiddley bits inside a nexus hub. If you have any doubts about your ability to work on one, take it to a dealer. It is also important to use the right lube.
