Can nerve injury mean the same as nerve damage or spinal cord damage?

No . Nerve injury is different than spinal cord damage. Spinal cord damage is more severe than nerve injury.
See answer below. Nerve injury is the same as nerve damage and implies injury to a peripheral nerve (outside of the cord) that can lead to localized numbness, weakness or burning and tingling sensation. Spinal cord damage on the other hand is usually much more serious. It is a lesion in the spinal cord that, depending on the severity of the lesion, can lead to paralysis such as tetraplegia or paraplegia.
Terms differ. Nerve injury implys something(trauma, disease) that interfers with the health of a nerve.It implys there may or may not be loss of function , be temporary or permanent. Damage implys perminent loss of function. "spinal cord damage" localizes the injury/damage to the cord rather than a nerve outside of the cord (like a leg).
