In brief: Trauma from fall
The most serious hip injury would be a fracture of the "surgical neck" of the long bone of the thigh (femur).
Depending on the patient's age and medical condition, treatment can range from prolonged bed rest to hip replacement surgery. Outside of a fracture, most injuries are minor, consisting of bruises and sore muscles.
