Is there a way to find out if a trailer has been in an accident?

Do you mean other than visually inspecting the frame for repair welds, or frame rails not being straight, etc.?

Check the title. If the damage is extensive, the title will reflect it.

Ditto Paul. The best info can be gained by a visual inspection of the trailer. I've looked at trailers and was told various stories of how "perfect" they were as well as their ages. Many times an inspection found faults that belied these statements, as well as the DATA plates that indicated their actual manufacturers" construction dates. Often times these relevations varied greatly from the original statements made by the sellers. If you are unfamiliar with basic trailer constructions, find an expert to accompany you. Trailers are often an "as is" sale when buying from a private individual. Buyer beware. Do your due diligence.

Titles can be washed...:(
