What about looking down at something close (like a book) for a long time? Does that trigger it? What about looking straight out at the horizon at something far away? Do you notice it more or less when your heart rate is high? What does the dizziness feel like? Loss of balance? Room spinning? Lightheaded / like you're going to pass out? Could be something to do with your eyes. Could be something with your upper neck as a result of the trauma. Could be your inner ear. So many possibilities you should really see a doctor.
As a chiropractor and the fact that your symptoms were triggered by a trauma I would want to look at your upper neck. A misalignment of the upper cervical vertebrae could have an impact on the nerves around your brain stem and your cerebellum (balance center ) could be affected as a result. I would really need more information to know if an adjustment could help or could be a "quick fix" for you, but I would definitely see a chiropractor in your area. You may also want to see a neurologist or some specialist. You could just start with your GP but you'd likely be referred out. Good luck!
