Hi,
you can use Auto Repair and Recovery tool. its an in built tool included in all version of Microsoft Office, this tool will allow you to recover the corrupted file. Note: This recovery tool is not perfect, the detect and repair tool is a fairly basic engine, it wont be help full in case of a critical error.

You can also locate the temporary file of the original file. Its a hidden file. the temporary file will have a few different letters after the tilde like ~. for eg it ill be like ~wrdabcd.tmp. once you found the file ,Copy the file to a designated folder and rename the file extension from .tmp to .doc.
