violent presumption

violent presumption
A presumption which is very strong and forcible, although not necessarily a conclusive or irrebuttable one. It is an inference which the law unhesitatingly requires to be drawn from given facts; it is a conclusion quite self-evident from the premises. Shealy & Finn v Edwards, 75 Ala 411, 419.
