Yes, there are special companies that will do data recovery for you, but they tend to be fairly expensive from what I've heard.

You can also get special 3rd party software to help recover lost information on disks...

Here are just a few from google:

http://www.stellarinfo.com/
http://www.drivesavers.com/
http://www.datarecoverygroup.com/
http://www.dataleach.com/

I would look into the software option first mind you, as sending it in will cost you more...
good luck

Before you incur that great expense of having your data retrieved. Try pluging the disk into another system or power your system down. Plug everything in, power up everything. Making sure to power on the computer last. Sometime the system gets confused. if you just plug and unplug a fireware drive.

Just a side note: unmount a file system (firewire dirve) before you power it off.
