Floppy Disk - Cyclic Redundancy error

One of the genius attorneys stuck his floppy disk into a zip drive, and when it had a hard time going in, he jammed it in the drive.  The metal guard came off the disk a crack was put into the floppy disk case (not bending the data part of it).  I stuck it in the floppy drive and it worked.  When I was called back, the disk was not working. It would hang when you clicked on A drive then asked to insert a floppy disk.  So I tried accessing it in cmd prompt to see what it would tell me. It said there was a cyclic redundancy error.  His client's legal papers are on this disk.  He obviously does not have a backup of the data since he is requesting I recover the data.  Not good for him to depend on a floppy for storing a file.  I was wondering, even with a failure with the CRC, will it be possible to recover his data?

I found that BadCopy v3 works in recovering files from a corrupt disk (with crc errors), however, you have to buy the full version inorder to recover your files.
