My feeling is, you should (if you can afford it) take the HD to a recovery service, instead of first trying recovery software. The main reason is, as was stated earlier, the less meddling you do with your crashed HD, the better your chances of a recovery service getting your data back.
And please start making regular backups from now on - you can avoid this painful situation in the future. I wish you the best in your situation!
