Remove the drive and use either an external enclosure or a universal adapter. Plug it into another computer and drag and drop. Go for your user data first as sometimes you only get one shot. Next you can try running Disk Utility to repair it or more sophistication repair programs such as Tech Tool Pro.

Hard Disk is very fragile device if it is physically damaged you can not recover your data by yourself. You have no option except replacing your hard drive.

But if you want to recover data you can go for data recovery service providers !!
