Brief Answer:
Could be a kidney injury

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

this could be related to a kidney injury particularly if you landed with your flank. Injury to any part of the urinary tract is possible but these parts are not very easy to injure during a fall.
Blood in the urine needs immediate medical assessment, because it may lead to hypotension and other life-threatening conditions.

You can contact me again, if you'd like more information or clarifications.

Kind Regards!
