Torsion arm bent on motorcycle trailer

I literally just purchased a trailer and got rear ended on the way home. Fender was bent from impact and upon inspection, I notice the wheel is not centered. It is slightly bent outwards. Do I need to replace the entire axle? Itís a torsion axle donít know if Iím able to just replace the torsion arm. Or can I? I also notice 2 rubber cord popped off in between the axle and arm. Appreciate anyoneís feedback on this!

Here are some photos

Wouldn't a Motorcycle forum be a more appropriate place for your questions since Forest River doesn't make motorcycle trailers and this is a forum for RVs?

Is that a Kendon trailer?

Definitly something is going to have to be replaced.
You can contact the mfg.

May have to find a trailer repair place that can give you an estimate for your insurance claim.
