In brief: Yes
A year without seizures does not guarantee that you will never have another seizure.
Head trauma can also cause a seizure. I hope this is already being evaluated and treated by your doctor. If not, see a doctor right away. You should not be driving or operating heavy machinery for now. Make certain your friends, family, coworkers know about your seizure disorder and recent head trauma.
