Do I have a case if I got burnt by contrast dye at the hospital

It would depend on whether the medical professional (likely a doctor or nurse) breached a standard of care when administering the contrast dye. You should contact an attorney to discuss the facts of your situation. Most will offer a free consultation.

There have been lawsuits in the past for defective/dangerous contrast dyes, so have a local lawyer investigate. Avvo has the best lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney nearby. Good luck.
Depends on how badly you were burned. If not permanent or serious, the costs to litigate a medical malpractice claim would not make this case viable (assuming you can prove liability).
