as always: try to bypass the fs first and get the data to working disk.
"dd" or even better "dd_rescue" seem to be the tools of choice here.
then, after copying the data to file, you can try "fsck" on this file
and see, what it gives. this way you don't have to deal with hardware
errors while recovering.
