do you mean you ran into the general unreliablity of the kernel's HFS

sadly there are no utilities for linux that will do any kind of
recovery on HFS filesystems, the MacOS side has Disk First Aid which
is fairly limited and gives up easily, but its free (beer) and worth a
try, beware though that it could make things worse, Norton Utilities
4 worked very well at recovering data from HFS filesystems but is
expensive and no longer available, only buggy version 5 exists now.
