Try the following.

  • Look in your trash for a "Recovered items" folder
  • Go to the Finder, select Go > Go to folder, type /private/var/folders and look for files named "Word Work File" inside a "Temporary items" folder.* Option drag files or folders to the Desktop (or anywhere else) before dropping them on Word's icon. Don't delete anything!
