RE: Error when opening a document
there is a recovery site & some possible fixes discussed on gimps registry below:

When importing from PSD, and you want to continue working with the file/layers in gimp, its always a good idea to save it in gimps' native file format .XCF (in gimp 2.8+ click "save as...")

One other thing you can try is opening the PSD in its original format in PS, then saving each layer as a .PNG to save transparency if any. Then import layer by layer into gimp.

A similar process to the .PNG one I said was found here:
