Frontal Lobe Epilepsy: head trauma as cause, but where?

Character is a 30-something female with frontal lobe seizures (primarily simple but occasionally complex) as a result of head trauma. Does she need to get hit on the exact spot where the seizures will originate from, or can it be any spot on the head? I.e. she receives a blow to the back of the head and it damages her frontal lobe? If not that, will any blow to the front part of the head be enough?

For reference, her tentative symptoms involve trembling (especially in the arms), fear, speech arrest, and grimacing, with occasional loss of bladder control during complex episodes. I don't know if that's necessary, but there it is.

I did plenty of google research but I'm not exactly sure how to phrase the question to get the answer I'm looking for. Thanks so much!
