When your bail is officially forfeited, and you have a bail bond, your cosigner will automatically become financially responsible for said bond. This means that your bail bond company will either have the cosigner pay the rest of the bond or they will have to sell the collateral that was provided per your agreement. If you care about the person that cosigned on your bond, you will understand why this is such a huge deal.
It is up to you to work with your bail bond company, as well as your cosigner, to ensure that you make it to all of your court dates. Having a legitimate reason to miss a court date is hard and, depending on your history, the judge may not be lenient on you. If you think there may be a reason that you will miss a court date, you should speak to your lawyer and see what they have to say. They do not want you to miss your court date either.
