It's both, actually. If he hadn't been fired upon, he wouldn't have felt the need to jump to warp. If he hadn't jumped to warp, the damage to the nacelles wouldn't have come into play. Also, being fired upon, even while shielded, causes stress on the Valkyrie, which would have excaberated the problem with the warp coils (shaking a lot does not help structural damage any) which would have led to problems down the line, anyway.

So there you go.
