In brief: Trauma

The kidneys are located in such a way that any significant trauma to the flank (sides) or lower back can result in potential damage to the kidneys.
It is not unusual for people in car accidents or contact sports to occasionally see blood in their urine following a serious impact. However, it does take a significant trauma....Not usually mild contact.
