In brief: Many

The list is too numerous to mention.
Spend more time being a better rider and less time memorizing injuries and you will be much better off. Was there a specific injury you were concerned about?

In brief: Depends

Depends on patient age, energy of the fall, and way you land.
Older patients usually suffer hip fractures. Younger patients usually suffer soft tissue injury or if there is a fracture then it is usually below the joint in the femur.
