corrupt .wav file... how to uncorrupt

Came home from work opened up my audio file (I record legal examinations and record audio for backup). My .wav file will not play. Any program out there I can use on a mac to fix this corrupted .wav file?

Try using another app to play the file and see if that makes any difference. What app do you usually use to play said .wav files?
MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012) 2.3 GHz Core i7, 8GB, 256GB M4 SSD
iPhone 6 - 64GB S/G Sound System Audio Engine A2 Display UltraSharp U2412M 24"

Do you know for sure that it's corrupted, or do you say that because it won't play?

If it's truly corrupted, you probably won't be able to recover the whole thing, and you might not be able to recover anything. Corruption is the digital equivalent to dynamite.

Now, if it just won't play, you might be able to recover all the data, or most of it.

Do you get any messages when you try to open the file?
