presumption

  

Definition

In law, assumption or inference that a fact exists, on the basis of the known existence of other fact(s). Although a presumption shifts the burden of proof from the party it favors to the opposing party, almost every presumption is a rebuttable presumption allowed only until it is not proven wrong.
