In 2020, Mr. Cox secured a confidential settlement for the family of a woman who sustained terrible burns to her upper torso, arms, and neck after a defective firework blew up thirty minutes after it had been properly used as intended. Mr. Cox pursued a products liability lawsuit against multiple corporations, including the Chinese manufacturer and distributors and retailers in the United States. Following years of litigation against corporations with deep pockets, Mr. Cox uncovered the sad truth that many fireworks manufactured in China and later sold in the U.S. contain illegal flash powder in burst charges. U.S. companies have known about this for years while continuing to sell the products. Flash powder in burst charges is illegal for good reason: flash powder is 4-6 times more powerful than black powder.
