Extracting DNA from frozen plasma

Are there any special precautions about that need to be taken when thawing
out a blood sample (plasma) and then extracting DNA?  Since the sample was
frozen, I suspect that all the cells will be broken (from being frozen and
thawed) and I thought that this could affect the high molecular weight DNA
(due to DNAses..?) which could be a problem during a PCR reaction. Help.
