could a mechanic break the rack & pinion when fixing the power steering pump? on 2005 Jeep Liberty

The jeep has about 102,000+ miles. We had problems first with the power steering pump & the high pressure hose leaking so we had them replaced. Than with in days we noticed the jeep leaking fluid again and thy told us the rack & pinion need replacing & another power steering hose are leaking. We are looking at over $1000 when we just payed around a hefty chunk a week ago. I am just not educated enough about cars to know if what is going on is above board or if something fishy is going on. I am looking for any feedback please
