    Welcome to Android Central! Were the contacts saved to your Google account, or the local Phone account? If the former, then they should have synced automatically with your Google Contacts in the cloud--go to contacts.google.com on your computer browser to check. If the latter, then you won't be able to retrieve the contacts, since they're in a SQLite database on a protected system directory on the phone, so even if you could access the phone's storage, you'd need to be rooted to get to that database. The important takeaway here is to take advantage of Google Contacts whenever possible to avoid situations like this.
