Do I have a good case if my mechanic if he broke the motor of my car on a test drive?

My mechanic completed repairs on my sports car, tuned up the fuel pump and installed new hoses. Upon completion, they took the car for a test drive and the crankshaft broke destroying the motor which was running when I drove it there.
