Prominent Dallas personal injury attorney dies

DALLAS (AP) — A prominent Dallas personal injury attorney has died about a week after the suicide of his 16-year-old daughter.

The Dallas County medical examiner’s office says Brian Loncar died Sunday but that a cause of death has not yet been determined. Police said he’d been taken to a hospital overnight.

The 56-year-old was well-known in Texas for his television advertisements, in which he branded himself the “strong arm.” His firm has 11 offices across Texas, including one in Fort Worth.

A statement from Brian Loncar’s family on Sunday said they were filled with “enormous sadness and profound grief” following his death. It also said they were “hurting and struggling to understand.”
