It's probably that you have not saved the file correctly, thus it became corrupted.
I would advise making a backup and check the website below if you want to have any chances of recovering the file.

When your .AI file is hardly damaged, you may refer to powerful solution Recovery Toolbox for Illustrator
I've discovered a fix that worked for me in un-corrupting corrupt adobe Illustrator files - quite by accident. Hope this helps someone!
Requires Acrobat (not just the Reader).
Works on (and was tested in) Illustrator version 10 and all CS versions.

>Just move the object by hitting one of the directional arrows on your keyboard.
>Open the file in Illustrator.
>It will say 'this file has been modified outside of Illustrator' or something to that effect. it will ask if you want to keep changes.
>Say 'Yes' (or OK)
