HI CCMC - sounds like a tricky one - whilst the garage ought to have checked the timing belt it is possible there is no connection between the two events. On the other hand if the timing belt had failed at the same time as the auxilary belt (which is quite common) you would have been totally liable. It may be a case of trying to establish negligence which in law there needs to be a causal link betwen what someone did or failed to do. As a matter of interest what age is the car and how many miles are on the engine. Also when was it last serviced. In your case it may be prudent to seek legal advice on the matter
