You may be able to recover it, but most likely not without a lot of effort. Search the web for Mac data recovery software. There are tools for Windows and Linux as well. In the deep, dark past, I have had to personally resort to physically searching disc sectors for the data lost, and then copy that back to an offline drive sector by sector, such as a thumb drive - DO NOT copy anything back to the system drive or you will likely make the situation worse!

did you use Time Machine to recover?
