Welcome to HCM.
What you are experiencing is post traumatic epilepsy kind of thing, where the triggering spot is inside the brain, which had healed after the trauma but left behind a scar which acts as a trigger zone, randomly.
Consult a neurologist and let him examine your nervous system and if indicated a brain MRI may be needed.
Wish you all the best.
