DiskWarrioir has a scavenge or recover feature. You might want to try
that first. There are other ecovery apps out there but with your
errors, you might be best to send it off to a data revovery expert.

That said, DriveSavers.com is highly regarded as are many of the other
popular data recovery services. It's pricey though.
