2008 Chevrolet HHR - Leaks

Brought in to reputable shop a new ,Got replacement front timing cover gasket and serpentine belt. Had to argue that it was still leaking oil, then after I literally had to prove the leak, they did job over, then 1-2 months later my head gasket has blown, and can not drive due to overheating. Is there any chance that it is the shops at fault ? They say coinciedence. Although never had a issue prior to the car being in the shop.

There is no connection. It is coincidence.
