Depends on how it died. If it still spins, you might be able to get something off it with a data recovery tool. If it doesn't spin, and you didn't hear a noise that sounded like a penny being sucked into a vacuum cleaner, you might be able to recover data with a PCB swap, assuming you can find an identical drive to swap with.

If you had a head crash, you're utterly SOL.
