try booting from a linux live CD

if that doesn't work you can spend hundreds maybe over 1000 dollars for professional recovery but I'd only do that if the info was SUPER important

Are you sure it is physically damaged? You should ask for a professional data recovery company to get back your data as soon as possible.
