Libre Office keeps crashing when opening one .docx file

Hi there!

I am writing an essay, pretty long, multiple (large) pictures in it, in .docx format in LO Writer. Yesterday when I notices some where not visible and wanted to re-add them, LO crashed. Now, I can't open this one file in LO anymore. LO just crashes on startup and asks me to restart in safemode. Even then, it crashes when trying to open that file. I was able to open it in Word, save it in .odt and opening it in LO again, but in Word and now with the .odt file, all my settings for chapters and headings etc. are gone and I have to set it all over again. Which is horrible.

Is there anyway to fix the broken .docx file to open it in LO again?
